Gran Sierpe Pisco is a high-end, Miami-based brand culled from grapes grown in Southern Peru and distilled in copper kettles. Most folks don't realize that pisco was very popular in the United States in the early 1900s; it disappeared during prohibition and didn't come back until the recent trending towards Latin cocktails and creative mixology.
The following recipe for Gran Sierpe Punch was concocted by local mixologists Gabe Orta and Elad Zvi of Bar Lab. It is simple to prepare, but it would be a shame to drink by yourself. Prepare a pitcher of it when guests come around, because a good punch is one of those things that are always more rewarding to give than to receive. This is especially true of a punch in the nose.
