Pisco is a colorless grape brandy produced in either Chile or Peru, and I wouldn't recommend joining any debate as to which region's pisco is superior. No matter what type you prefer, the end result will always be delicious. Pisco goes down nice and easy, especially on a hot day. But it packs a significant punch, so keep that in mind.
1 1/2oz Pisco
3/4oz fresh lime juice
1oz simple syrup
Several drops Angostura Bitters
1 small egg white
Dry shake egg white pisco and lime, add ice and shake vigorously again. Strain into a well chilled cocktail glass and garnish with several drops of Angostura Bitters on top of the foam created by the egg.

|"El Quiche", with optional fried potato topper|
1 cup finely chopped beet greens
1/2 cup chopped onion
2 tbs chopped Ancho chile
3/4 cup grated Manchego
1/3 cup milk or cream (almond works great for this)
1 package puff pastry
Soak 1 dried Ancho chile in a bowl of hot water for 30 minutes. Preheat oven to 425, and roll puff pastry to about an 11"-ish square and place in a 9" pie pan (trim the edges). In a pan, over medium/high heat, saute the chopped onions and Anchos in olive oil, until the onions are translucent. Then, add the beet greens, allow to wilt for about 5-7 minutes. Whisk 3 eggs and brush the edges of puff pastry with egg wash then add the milk and cream and whisk again. Fold in all ingredients and pour into puff pastry. Bake until crust is gold brown and the eggs are cooked, about 25 minutes. Let cool for 10 minutes, and enjoy y'all!
