Colca Sour; an unique Cocktail!

Do you know that an enjoyable drink called Colca Sour is the Colca canyon version of the Pisco Sour?

Yes right! 🙂 And the big difference is that instead of lime juice the locals use the Sancayo juice.

But what is Sancayo?:

Sancayo is an incredibly sour local cactus fruit (Corryocactus brevistylus) and it is endemic to Peru, Bolivia and Chile.

The “Colca sour” can be tasted in our region Arequipa and specially in the second day of our Colca canyon excursion.

If you want to know or learn how to prepare this unique drink “Colca Sour”; then you need to learn an easy “formula”: 1+1+3 … That means:

1 ounce fresh squeezed Sancayo juice.
1 ounce simple syrup
3 ounces pisco.

An then.…. SALUD!

We keep you curious… Life is soooo interesting!
