Peas and Cues

Pisco Cocktail
Matthew Kelly / Supercall

There are all kinds of ways to enjoy the South American brandy, pisco, but we especially love the spirit when it’s mixed with a healthy balance of sweet and tart. For his nod to the Pisco Sour, bartender Sean Giordano of Chicago’s Fulton Market Kitchen harnessed the sweetness of spring peas. “We are trying to capture the essence of spring in a very floral, aromatic cocktail that has just a touch of savory quality at the finish,” Giordano says. “It's perfect as an aperitif or sipped alongside an early course such as salad, cheese or grilled seafood." Even though it’s made with spring peas, this delightful drink is perfect for imbibing any time of year.
