Uhm, what the hell is this recipe? Pisco Sour recipe: 50ml Pisco, 15ml lime, 10ml Lemon, 10ml sugar syrup (2:1 - sugar to water) Egg white, 2 dashes Amargo Chuncho Bitters (or Peruvian bitters as they are known). Put everything in a shaker (you're not making a meringue) Dry shake, wet shake, fine strain and you're done. Enjoy

This is a great drink but the recipe is TOO, TOO SWEET! And I have a sweet tooth as well, so that's quite something coming from me. I would recommend putting half the amount of sugar in than is recommended here. Everything else is fine. Some recipes recommend blending with ice, but that's really a no-no in my book and much better done by shaking it. Apart from easy on the syrup - it was yummy!
