This delicious sour is the national drink of Chile and Peru, setting up a fierce rivalry as to which country invented it. Pisco-based cocktails date back to the 1700s, but this particular beverage started appearing in the early 1920s in Morris' Bar in Lima, frequented by the upper echelons of Peruvian society. Our Mommenpop reverse version uses a generous pour of Makrut Limepop, less pisco, and a lemon-lime combination in an attempt to replicate the flavor of the local Peruvian citrus.
1.5 oz Makrut Limepop
1 oz pisco
.5 oz lime juice
.5 oz lemon juice
1 oz simple syrup
1 egg white or 1 oz aquafaba
Add all ingredients to a cocktail shaker with 1 ice cube. Shake hard for 5 seconds.
Add 4 more ice cubes and shake hard for another 5 seconds.
Strain into a chilled coupe or bucket glass immediately. Garnish with Angostura bitters.
