NEW YORK, April 28, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The third annual '7 Piscos: 14 Cocktails'– Ceviche and Pisco Party event will take place on April 29, 2016. This gastronomic happening will allow guests to experience delicious and refreshing summer drinks and innovative plating's from Peru.
A series of mini bar stations, staffed by noted mixologists will present mouth-watering cocktails that blend Peruvian flavors such as "aji amarillo" (Peruvian yellow spicy pepper) and tropical fruits like mango, into the perfect and refreshing combination. Other summer drinks will include ingredients like watermelon, strawberry, jalapeño, mint, Cointreau, wines and bitters amongst others. With summer around the corner, this event will certainly make you think twice before getting your typical cosmopolitan at the bar.
This spirit is produced from eight kinds of grapes grown in Pisco, Peru. There varietals are evenly divided into Non-Aromatic (Quebranta, Negra Criolla, Mollar, Uvina) and Aromatic (Italia, Toronelo, Moscatel, Albilla). Then, each grape can be processed using three styles: Puro (uses only one grape), Acholado (blends different types of grapes), and Mosto Verde (in which the fermentation process is halted). This spirit is at the heart of every celebration enjoyed throughout the country for centuries. The versatility and variety make this beverage a perfect choice for summer cocktails, explained Diego Loret de Mola the owner of Barsol and longtime promotor of Pisco in the US.
Exquisite cuisine paired with cocktails and presented by last year's award winning restaurants from the 'Ceviche vs. Tiradito' tasting experience in New York. Our star chefs, Fernando Tisoc from Coco Roco and Marita Lynn of Runa will feature two different preparations to create signature ceviches. The "classico" is made only with fish and the "mixto" includes a combination of shrimp, artichoke and fish. Fresh and innovative salads are being created with an avocado base and a second made with quinoa as the anchoring ingredient. Classic other dishes will include "Aji de Gallina" chicken in an "aji amarillo" sauce and "Shiitake and Quinoto" risotto. The evening's menu will end on sweet note with the classic "Alfajores" and Peruvian cacao confections.
