Mango Ricotta Parfait

Cozy Toddy

Perfect fireside companion, along with a blanket and good company! Relax with the flavors of cognac, rum, and lemon.

Pisco Sour

Both Chile and Peru claim the classic Pisco Sour as their own. Egg whites give it a lovely froth. Make the traditional version with pure sugar cane syrup, or amp up the citrus flavor with our Lemon Zest KISS.


Enjoy the taste of summer in Peru by preparing this simple cocktail made with Pisco (grape brandy).
