Recipe: Chicha Sour

Peruvian dishes and drinks are mostly result of unlikely fusions that turned out to be delicious. Chicha Sour is an uncanny drink that combines two of the most iconic products in Peru: purple corn and pisco. This is the sweet sister of the widely known "Pisco Sour" and a must in fancy bars of every city in the peruvian coast. The unique taste of this Pisco Sour Chicha and it's cold preparation - which includes ice and lemon - makes it the perfect cocktail for the summer.


6 ounces Pisco
2 ounces chicha syrup
1 ounce lemon juice
7 ice cubes
4 drops Angostura bitters
3 spoons egg white


To prepare chicha syrup, boil chicha morada and add sugar until it gets syrup texture. When its ready and cold, put the syrup in a cocktail shaker, alongside the ice, pisco, lemon and egg white. Shake it for 30 seconds and serve. Add two cups of Angostura bitters on each cup. And enjoy!
