Peru Independence Day

Peru had been a colony of Spain for nearly 300 years when Simon Bolívar (1783-1830), along with José San Martín (1778-1850), led the Battle of Ayacucho in 1824 that resulted in the end of Spanish rule of Bolivia and Peru.

Grilled guinea-pig, that is my dream. But I am not convinced about drink, they recommend as well for a Day.

Pisco Sour (makes 2 servings)
3 oz. pisco brandy (may substitute grappa or white rum)
2 T sugar or simple syrup
2 T fresh lime juice
2 tsp. pasteurized egg whites
Angostura bitters and lime wedges, for garnish

Preparation:

In a blender, add pisco, sugar, fresh lime juice, egg whites and a handful of ice cubes. Blend until smooth and serve straight up in a chilled martini glass or champagne flute. For an aromatic garnish, top with a dash of angostura bitters and a wedge of lime. If you prefer not to blend it, add all of the ingredients into a cocktail shaker. Shake well, then serve.

Hey, their flag looks like Canada in autumn, no leaf! It's cold enough for me to wear my alpaca chollo (pointy beanie with earflaps) but the alpaca wool is itchy as hell. I've always been curious about ceviche, it's always eaten in Mario Vargas Llosa's books.

Happy Independence Day, Peru!
