Blackberry Pisco Sour

August 11, 2009

Barsol Pisco
Blandy's Madeira
egg white
lime juice

Muggle the blackberry with the sugar. Combine ingredients and dry-shake. Add ice and shake for at least one minute. Fine strain into a cocktail glass. Dot surface with blackberry syrup.
(editor's note: "Muggle" should read "Muddle". For god's sake don't dare muggle the berry!)

What can we say? The Pisco Sour is delicious as is, but why not take advantage of the berry season? The dash of madeira keeps it from getting too sweet, and brings out the complexity of the Pisco.

I don't think I'm familiar with this "muggleing" technique ... ;-)

You don't know about "muggling"? It's when you juggle the berries for two minutes before tossing 'em in the drink. Everyone knows that!

Or... maybe it's what happens when you make a blog entry before the coffee kicks in. I dunno. :)
