Pisco is a light-colored spirit similar to grappa. It is produced by distilling the grape pomace and wine after fermentation has occurred. Pisco is usually not aged, and is the national spirit of both Chile and Peru. We tried this cocktail while hosting a trip to Rio Manso Lodge in Argentina's Patagonia region and fell in love.
