Lima has developed quite a reputation as a culinary destination and not just for its food. The national cocktail has also conquered the world and virtually any self-respecting bar will serve a variation of the pisco sour.
Chile and Peru have long been embroiled in a dispute over the origin of pisco, a grape distillate with an alcoholic content of at least 38 percent. Both countries claim to have invented pisco and regard it as their national drink; the pisco sour as the national cocktail is a logical twist. Many connoisseurs prefer the Peruvian pisco over the Chilean because the grapes from Peru are sweeter. As a result, Peruvian pisco requires no additional ingredients, such as water or sugar.
