Zen Tiki Lounge Sour

On episode 324 of ZTL podcast the ladies were discussing how many cocktails seem to have similar ingredients and flavor profiles.  Well, there are only so many ways to mix up some drinks.  But give it a few tries and you can make something new out of old classic.  The Pisco Sour is very popular in South America and has arguable roots in both Chile and Peru.  Some stories say the drink was originally concocted by Victor Morris at a bar in Peru.  Others say Eliott Stubb invented the drink while in Chile.  Well, we don't know who did it first but Sunshine wanted to fool around with his own version.  And thats how we get a ZTL sour.  Pisco, Brandy, juices and Falernum were made for each other.  Follow our recipe:

1 ounce Pisco

1 ounce Brandy

1 ounce Sour Mix

.5 ounce Lime Juice

.25 ounce Falernum (homemade is best)

1/2 of an egg white (pasteurized egg whites in the carton are very handy)

1 dash Angostura Bitters

Shake all together with ice till well frothed.  Strain into chilled glass or us a single large ice cube.  Garnish with lime twists over rim of glass.
