Heat Wave special: Try this refreshing pisco sour slushie!

A pisco sour is a delightful cocktail popular in Peru and Chile. It was first concocted by American bartender Victor Vaughn Morris in the 1920s. The drink uses pisco, a grape brandy, as its base.There are tons of recipes out there for pisco sours many of which include egg whites, bitters, and the must have "sour" via citrus juice.

It wasn't until this year that I tried my very first pisco sour while on a visit to Miami. I don't know why it took me so long to indulge in this awesome South American cocktail. Maybe I was a little freaked out by the whole egg white thing, but I have to say that I'm sorry I took so long to indulge. What a waste of precious pisco sour time!
