Pisco Portón

Pisco is an interesting spirit, both Peru and Chili claim that theirs is the authentic stuff. According to my half-assed attempt at research, they have been making it longer in Chili, but the town of Pisco is in Peru. The only brand available in Ohio is from Peru, so Peru wins.

The spirit is distilled from grapes.  Making it technically a brandy.  It reminds me of a fine grappa.  Nothing wrong with that.

I mixed up my take of the Pisco sour for the photo.  In spite of its jizz like appearance, it is not a foo-foo cocktail.
