Pisco Sour Cocktail 15 Dec 2009

Robert, I have been going to Portillo, Chile for the last three years in Sept. to snow ski. One night a week they have "Pisco Sour" night in the hotel. I have been making them on return home using the Peruvian recipe. I made a point to watch the bartender make the Pisco using the Chilean receipe. They make it in a blender and instead of simple syrup they use powdered sugar. They also do not use egg whites. (I prefer the egg white). A Chilean native recommeded Alto Del Carmen (in the black box) as the finest Pisco made in Chile.
