  1. Add the vodka/pisco, yuzu simple syrup and lemon juice, plus a few ice cubes, to a cocktail shaker. Shake very well for 10-20 seconds until thoroughly combined.
  2. Pour the mixture through the strainer into a champagne glass.
  3. Top off each glass with sparkling water.
  4. Garnish the bottom of each glass with the yuzu peel from the syrup, if desired.


A pisco sour is traditionally made with an egg white shaken into it, which makes it cloudy and heartier, but I left that out. Feel free to include it, assuming, of course, that you have a supply of trustworthy eggs. Also, a traditional pisco sour doesn't include any sparkling water, and it uses lemons instead of yuzu. So lemons would be an appropriate substitution for the yuzu. Variations: Instead of plain seltzer, you can try using any seltzer in a complementary flavor (grapefruit would work well). You can also try using champagne in place of seltzer.
