The secret of a good tasting pisco sour (besides using a good pisco) is the shaking of its egg whites. The more air the egg whites get when shaking, the better it will taste. That’s why many people prefer preparing it in a cocktail shaker instead of a blender.

Don’t try using regular or powdered sugar instead of the sugar syrup. You will get a totally different taste.

Don’t replace lemon for lime. The taste of the pisco sour is great when you bring the acidity of the lime into the mix..

You will need  2-3 drops of  Angostura Bitters in the middle of the pisco sour at the end..
