Pamela Wiznitzer, Dead Rabbit | New York City

In an American ode to the Pisco Sour, New York City bartender Pamela Wiznitzer adds the kitschy (and utterly delightful) element of blue Curaçao to color this cocktail bright cerulean blue. A layer of egg white lays a thick, frothy blanket over which Peychaud’s bitters are dashed to create the star-spangled affect of red, white and blue.


Serving: 1

  • 2 1/2 ounces pisco (preferably Porton)
  • 3/4 ounce blue curaçao
  • 1 ounce lime juice
  • 1/4 ounce simple syrup (1:1, sugar:water)
