Notes

  • You can replace the pisco with whiskey for a cranberry whiskey sour.
  • Also, if you can’t find pisco you can use another grape brandy or Italian grappa.
  • For a mocktail or non-alcoholic version replace the pisco with your choice of zero-proof alternatives or good old sparkling water.
