After speaking with the extremely interesting
, environmentally conscious
, pisco expert Johnny Schuler, we were just dying to get a taste of a pisco cocktail. Schuler mentioned that the drink Grapes and Roses was created for the South Beach Wine and Food Festival using his new Portón as the spirit ingredient. Apparently, it was quite a big hit with the other mixologists that attended. Now you can taste the grapes, garnish with rose petals at home, and pisco your night away!
