Green Grape Pisco Sour

Pisco has been one of my favorite spirits since living in the Bay Area (where pisco punch is a big deal). So, when I saw this recipe for a fun twist on the pisco sour in the latest issue of Cooking Light, I knew I wanted to try it!  In addition to the traditional ingredients of pisco, lime (or lemon), and egg white, this cocktail adds green grapes muddled with sugar and lime zest.  I found the grape flavor wasn't overly pronounced, but it did add a nice sweetness.  Overall, this cocktail was very tasty!

2 tsp sugar
1 tsp lime zest

A few dashes Boston bittahs (or other bitters)

1. Muddle the grapes, sugar, and lime zest in a cocktail shaker.
2. Add the pisco, lime juice, and egg white, and shake vigorously for 30 seconds to 1 minute.
3. Add a few ice cubes to the shaker and shake again for 30 seconds or so until very cold.
4. Strain the mixture over ice into two glasses.  Top each cocktail with a dash or two of bitters.
