Saturday, February 1st is International Pisco Sour Day

Let’s get ready for International Pisco Sour Day! We can’t promise Peru’s amazing weather, but we can bring you the nation’s iconic Pisco Sour cocktail recipe.

 
Created in the early 1900′s by bartender Victor Vaughen Morris, it has undergone many changes over the years, but it has always meant to be a cocktail full of sweet and sour components. Peru continues to celebrate their national cocktail every year on the first Saturday of February. It has become such a big deal that Peru mandates that the Pisco Sour replaces wine and champagne for official toasts at the presidential palace and celebrations at ministries and embassies. Crazy, huh?
