Cocktailian's picture

in Peru they always add a dash of cinnamon after pouring--it really brings out the spicier notes in the Pisco

From other users

It has been suggested that I should make this with a teaspoon of superfine raw sugar in place of the simple syrup, and a meyer lemon or a key lime. It sounds interesting. (3 stars)
Can increase simple to 3/4 or 1 oz for those with sweeter taste (4 stars)
