Pisco Sours in a Champagne flute Pisco is an alcoholic drink - a kind of colourless brandy - from Peru. Tracey brought back a bottle when she and Seb visited a few years ago.

Here's an easy recipe for this classic cocktail.

Fill a cocktail shaker two-thirds full of ice. Add a large measure of Pisco and a large measure of sugar syrup. (A tablespoon of caster sugar will do at a pinch.)

Squeeze the juice from a lime and half a lemon, and add the juices to the shaker.

Add a couple of dashes of Angostura Bitters to a champagne flute. Shake the cocktail hard for a minute or so, then drain into the flute, making the bitters swirl around. Serve immediately.
