Holiday of Pisco Sour cocktail in Peru

Автор: 23.07.2016 | holiday, Peru
Every year on the fourth Sunday of July Peru celebrates the Day of Pisco Sour cocktail - a holiday of the country's most popular cocktail, prepared on the basis of grape vodka pisco enjoyed by the Peruvians since the 16th century.

For some time Chile and Peru both claimed to be Pisco Sour’s birthplace. Both countries are famous for use a wide variety of lemons which are a classic fragrance ingredient. But today there are official documents proving that the birthplace of Pisco drink is Peru, and thus, it is the Peruvian national drink.

In more detail, in July 2005 Peru filed an application for a denomination of origin to WIPO (World Intellectual Property Organization) and obtained a year later, in August 2006, the answer that Peru has the exclusive right to be called the country of origin of the drink.

Most popular is version that Pisco Sour cocktail was invented in the early 20th century in one of Lima popular bars. Its recipe is simple: grape vodka (8 parts), one egg white, lemon juice (4 parts), sugar or syrup (3 parts), cinnamon or other spices to taste. Usually cocktail is not diluted and served without ice.

The streets and squares of all the cities of the country in the fourth weekend in July held mass free tastings of the drink, accompanied by Creole music rhythms, dancing and general fun. In the south, where there are the main production area of pisco, traditionally held a national competition for best cocktail. It should be noted that the celebration in honour of the national cocktail is not limited to one day. In April 2004 it was formally decided to celebrate the Pisco Sour Day every year on the first Saturday of February.
