We're excited to host Peruvian producer and owner of Macchu Pisco and La Diabalada Pisco, Melanie deTrindade-Asher. Melanie is bringing a little bit of Peru to the South Loop Binny's as she personally blends her very own signature pisco sours and signs bottles.  

Pisco Sour Tasting with Melanie daTrindade-Asher Thursday, February 23rd 5-8pm Binny's South Loop

  What's a pisco sour? Only the classic Peruvian cocktail that matches the bright freshness of pisco with the zippy citrus of lime juice (or sometimes lemons). Here's a recipe adapted from Melanie's own MacchuPisco.com:

  More about Melanie deTrindade-Asher: She thought up her business as a childhood dream of bringing pisco to the world stage. After finishing at Harvard Business School in 2003, she decided to put her dreams into action and started her own company, Macchu Pisco, a family business run by Melanie, her sister and her mom. They bring a small collection of premium, all-natural piscos to the U.S. Melanie likes to say that her piscos give "All the highs without the lows." Don't miss this chance to try them for yourself!
