From the Publisher
Made with pisco, lemon juice, simple syrup, and egg white, this frothy spur off the sour family tree has roots in both America and Peru. The story goes that American-born Victor Morris moved to Peru in the early twentieth century to work on the railroads but ended up opening a bar instead. He supposedly fashioned an antecedent of what’s known as the Pisco Sour, bringing Peru’s local liquor to bear on a sour template.
