Pisco. What exactly is this South American spirit that has been all abuzz in the cocktail world in recent years? Its history goes back to the 16th century, but it's still largely undiscovered by the average American consumer. Other than the Pisco Sour, many wouldn’t know how to order it, what to look for when purchasing it or how to properly drink it. This week’s guest, pisco expert Romina Scheufele answers all of these questions. Romina’s family has been in the pisco making business for 5 generations, over 100 years. She is President & CEO at Capurro Pisco, her family’s artisan pisco from Peru.

Our featured cocktail recipe is the Chilcano, one of the most popular cocktails in Peru.

In an ice-filled highball glass add 2 Oz. pisco, top with ginger ale, and squeeze some fresh lime juice, give it a stir and enjoy.
