Thanks to the hard work of our guest today, Pisco Waqar is a whole lot easier to find on the shelves in London than it was even three years ago. Javiera Lorenzini Raty, Brand Ambassador for Pisco Waqar, fell in love with Pisco and John Donne at about the same time. I don’t usually say that in a sentence that’s for sure. Her passion for English poets may have led her to London, but her studies as a sommelier led her to Waqar and she couldn’t pass up the chance to work with her favorite Pisco here in Europe.

Our cocktail of the week is the Pisco Sour.


  • 3 Parts – WAQAR PISCO
  • 1 Part – Fresh Lime Juice
  • 1 Part – Gomme Syrup
  • 1 Egg White
  • 1 Drop of Angostura Bitters


  • In shaker with 5 large ice cubes (not crushed ice), combine liquids adding egg whites last.
  • Shake vigorously for 10-15 seconds.
  • Strain into six ounce rocks glass (be careful not allow any ice to pour into the cocktail.
  • Garnish: One drop Angostura Bitters and a dried lime or lemon on top.

You’ll find this recipe and all the cocktails of the week on, where you’ll also find all the ingredients in our shop.


Hello everyone - Don't get confused! Before there was Lush Life, there was Best Sips Worldwide, I rebranded after the first season. Although I reference Best Sips – it’s Lush Life through and through – the same great guests, the same music, and the same me!
