21 Apr Pastuso Classic Capitan
El Capitán (the Captain) is one of the most common Pisco based cocktails you will find in Peru. The name, as the legend goes, is derived from military captains who rode on horseback in the altiplano near Puno and asked for a drink of pisco mixed with vermouth. Basically, the El Capitán is the Pisco version of a Manhattan.
