To continue with our series of posts about the national drink, Pisco Sour; it is still unclear if it was really created at the Maury Hotel bar during the 30’s, or at the Morris during the 20’s… or where.

There are many stories regarding this. However, nowadays everyone agrees that the best Pisco Sour is the one prepared with pure pisco, especially one of Quebranta grape, a variety within the non-aromatic grapes.

Peru celebrates the Día del Pisco Sour (Pisco Sour Day) the first Sunday of February, and many municipalities organize local events and fairs with the attendance of pisco producers and local barmans… and with a little luck you may enjoy a free drink. Ask your local friends and check our upcoming events section.

One of the most known events is the one held at the Parque de la Amistad, in Surco, at the intersection of Benavides and Caminos del Inca avenues.

If you feel like exploring, we have a few more suggestions: the Señorio de Sulco restaurant, where you can obviously eat like a king;  and Cala, another superb restaurant with an excellent Pisco Sour.

In addition, you may want to visit the Lobby Bar at the JW Marriott Hotel, that usually offers a 2×1 Pisco Sour promotion these days, from the traditional one to the newest creations including exotic fruits and even coca leaf; and of course there´s the Maury Hotel Bar.

Cheers! Or the Peruvian toast, salud!
