Preparation

Zest the limes to garnish and to give 100ml lime juice, juice the limes. To give 100ml egg white, separate the eggs. Pit the cherries.

Method

  1. 1 To make cherry pisco, put the pisco and cherries in a large jug, cover with clingfilm and leave to infuse for at least 4 hours (but ideally overnight).
  2. 2 When ready to serve, strain the liquid, reserving some of the macerated cherries for garnish.
  3. 3 Meanwhile, make a simple sugar syrup.
  4. 4 Put the sugar with 100ml water in a heavy-based saucepan and bring to a boil over a high heat. Simmer until the sugar has dissolved. Remove from the heat and leave to cool completely before use.
  5. 5 The syrup will keep in a sealed container in the fridge for up to 2 weeks.
  6. 6 Make each cocktail separately: combine 50ml cherry pisco, 25ml syrup, 25ml lime juice and 25ml egg white in a cocktail shaker.
  7. 7 Top up with ice cubes to two-thirds full. Seal and shake vigorously for 30 seconds, or until the side of the shaker is ice-cold and frosted.
  8. 8 Strain into a cocktail glass, and shake over a couple of drops of Angostura Bitters.
  9. 9 Garnish with macerated cherries and lime zest.
  10. 10 Repeat for the other three cocktails.
