Looking for a South American cocktail to enjoy this summer (or winter, who’s judging?!)? Look no further than these tasty South American cocktails from all over the continent. My personal favourite has to be the Caipirinha from Brazil, but Pisco Sours are pretty darn good too. Just don’t go telling a Peruvian their from Chile, or vis-a-vis.
The Pisco Sour
Pisco is the national drink of Peru and the Peruvians have fought hard for it to be recognised as Peruvian, not Chilean. So hard in fact that there’s been a court battle about it. Tell a Peruvian you’ve tried ‘real Chilean Pisco’ at your peril. Mix Pisco with lemon, egg whites for a frothy top and some syrup.
The national drink of Brazil, and a delicious one at that. Don’t skimp on cheap alternatives that use vodka, the real version made using cachaça (alcohol from sugar cane) is so much nicer. Drink at the beach or in big cups somewhere in Rio’s Lapa district on a Friday night.
The Cuba Libra
The Piña Colada
