“Pisco is the happiest spirit in the world,” says Melanie Asher, co-founder of the brand Macchu Pisco. Indeed, she gets as fizzy and effervescent as a Pisco Sour when talking about her favorite Peruvian spirit.

December 6 happens to be National Pisco Sour Day (I just love holidays that revolve around drinking…) On Monday night at the Peruvian Embassy, Macchu Pisco co-hosted an event that celebrated the cocktail and its special day.
