Vanilla Hibiscus Pisco Sour

May 29, 2018

How about a little cocktail inspiration to kick off your Tuesday morning? I have a feeling you’re going to want to rush home this evening after work to make this pretty pink drink (or at least bookmark it for the weekend). My favourite kind of cocktail is one that has depth…A healthy balance of sweet and sour and some form of texture, like a salted rim or in this case, a foamy egg white and tart hibiscus powder. This vanilla hibiscus pisco sour hits every.single.critera in what makes a good cocktail in my opinion and I know I say this a lot, but I think that this is my favourite drink that I’ve ever made for this here blog. Trust me when I say, you need to try this guy out and serve it up at your next get together, your friends will be seriously impressed!
