pisco sour

1 1/2 oz Pisco
1/2 oz lemon juice
1 tsp sugar
1/2 egg white

Served in a rocks glass, dash Angostura bitters on the surface. Recipe: from CocktailDB. (*)

Somehow I managed to avoid trying a Pisco Sour until this past Friday... A soon-to-be-no-longer-unemployed friend and I decided to be a pair of ladies who lunch on her last day of unemployment, so I brought her to Eastern Standard since she'd never been. She wanted a Pisco sour for her second drink and who am I to say no to a pretty girl? Oh: so very yummy and much too easy to drink.

Then we went to Barneys and tried perfumes and visited a friend and lusted at shoes. Despite my unwavering love for brown liquor, I can be really fucking feminine at times.

(*) Post note 06/21/22: Eastern Standard most likely made this as 1 1/2 oz pisco, 3/4 oz lemon juice, 3/4 oz simple syrup, 1 egg white, with an Angostura Bitters garnish. The Hawthorne bar bible lists it as 2 oz pisco (they updated to a New York City spec when Katie Emmerson joined the team from Death & Co.) with everything else held the same (and specifying 5 drops of Angostura as garnish). Most bars use lime juice though even though Sours are traditionally lemon.
