This refreshing drink really packs a punch. Erin Murtagh of Chicon mixed things when she stopped by Studio 512. We made the Pisco Punch, a fragrant sweet concoction.
The drink consists of tea infused Pisco, which is then washed with milk. Milk washing takes out some of the tannin in the infusion, so you’re able to get more tea flavor without bitter tannin. Milk washed spirits become very frothy when shaken–mimicking the effects of an egg white in a drink. A splash of Maguey Vida Mescal, honey simple syrup, and lemon juice are combined with the Pisco infusion. The drink is finished with our house lavender bitters spritzed on top.
