"This is a twist on the traditional Chilean Pisco Sour. Calafate berries can be found all over southern Patagonia, and are used in much of its cuisine. If visiting southern Patagonia you can pick up Calafate juice or liqueur in any large town. I’d particularly recommend shopping at Estancia El Tranquilo in the centre of El Calafate – they sell homemade jams, wines and liqueurs made from native Patagonian fruits. The Helmich Calafate Liqueur is very good and is served in the wonderful Eolo hotel. Legend has it that if you taste a Calafate berry you are destined to return to Patagonia. What better reason can there be to try one of these cocktails?"

  • Prep: 15 minutes
