Why we love this passion fruit pisco sour
As a spirit pisco is new to me. I’d been wanting to try it for a while, but I finally grabbed a bottle and made a traditional pisco sour. This cocktail is a classic for a reason – it’s delicious and perfectly balanced.
But, since we had leftover passion fruit syrup from the Saturn cocktail we made last week, I decided to swap the classic simple syrup in the pisco sour.
To account for the added sour that the passion fruit adds, I flipped the sweet and sour ratio, and it worked perfect to re-balance the drink. With the added egg white, it’s a luxurious cocktail with a fresh and tangy twist.

Ingredients & substitutions
- Pisco – Pisco is a clear brandy made from distilled fermented grape juice. This unique brandy is sometimes said to taste similar to a tequila and hails from both Peru and Chile. It’s flavor is floral, fruity, earthy and slightly sweet.
- Passion fruit syrup – Try making your own passion fruit syrup, or feel free to use store bought.
- Lemon juice – Fresh squeezed is best
- Egg white – I use fresh eggs, but you can always buy pasteurized if you’re more comfortable with that.
- Angostura bitters – Bitters are a traditional garnish on a pisco sour, and I think they work really well with the passion fruit.
How to make a pisco sour with
Dry shake the drink. Combine the ingredients in a cocktail shaker without ice. Shake vigorously until the egg whites have become light and frothy. You can also use a handheld milk frother to make this step easier.
Shake the cocktail. Add ice to the cocktail shaker. Cover and shake until the cocktail is nice and cold.
Garnish and serve. Strain into a couple glass and garnish with three dots of angostura bitters. If desired, use a cocktail pick or toothpick to swirl the dots.
