The refreshing, easy-drinking pisco sour is Peru’s national cocktail, and it even has its own holiday — Pisco Sour Day — celebrated on the first Saturday in February. (Personally, we find the frothy cocktail made with pisco liqueur, egg whites, lemons and bitters to be perfect for any day ending in “y.”) In Washington, this momentous holiday is being celebrated at the Passenger, where local resident Melanie Asher, founder of boutique spirit Macchu Pisco, is hosting a pisco sour-centric celebration and fundraiser. Ten percent of all proceeds from pisco drink sales will be donated to the Coprodeli Education Program, a nonprofit group that provides education, health care and meals to disadvantaged families in Peru.
