Before BackpackMr and I hiked the Inca Trail, we spent some time in the city of Cusco, Peru, as we allowed our bodies to acclimatize to the elevation. I recently came across these photos I took while there, and realized I had not shared any of them.
Cusco is a truly stunning city, and it will always hold a special place in my heart. I hope you’ll take some time today to walk the streets of Cusco with me.
Thanks for joining me on this stroll through Cusco. As a thank you, I’m including this recipe for a classic pisco sour.
Ice, to fill shaker
3 oz. Pisco
1 oz. Simple Syrup
1 oz. Key Lime Juice
1 oz. Raw Egg White
2-3 Drops of Bitters
Place all ingredients except the bitters into a shaker and shake vigorously for several minutes, until the drink is foamy. Your arms will get tired and your hands will likely get cold! Strain the drink into a glass, no ice, and top with drops of bitters.
BackpackMr and I both agree…two pisco sours is good…three is bad.
