Pisco & Soda

Pisco & Soda highball cocktail

Love pisco, but looking for something lighter than a Chilcano or easier than a Pisco Sour? The Pisco & Soda might be just the ticket! This is often the first drink we make with a new bottle of pisco; the effervescence of the soda’s bubbles bring out the complex grape-and-floral flavors of the spirit.

For many spirit-and-soda drinks, we often recommend trying it with a well-made flavored sparkling water. This hold true for the Pisco & Soda as well, but with a caveat: since pisco has such delicate, ephemeral flavors, you should made sure that the flavored sparkling water you use is mildly flavored that that it doesn’t overpower the pisco.



Add the ingredients to a tall ice-filled glass in the order given. Stir gently to incorporate. Garnish with a mint bunch and a slice of cucumber, or a wedge of lime.

Cocktail Party app on tablets and phones

Get the App

The Cocktail Party app puts this drink – and hundreds more – in your pocket, and tells you what you can make from the ingredients you have at home. It's the best $3.99 you'll ever spend on a drink.

Game Changer

This is a game changer. When you're at the liquor store, thinking, "Yeah, ok fine what does Ancho Reyes liquor get me?" you open the app, look up Chile liquor and see that it gets you like 11 new cocktails. This is addictive, and indeed worth the price. We're having a blast under quarantine. While some of the ingredients are kind of anonymous, the icons look like the Campari bottle, and the descriptions often tell you if Campari will work or if you need Aperol. If you <3 cocktails, get this.
