Cocktail de Algarrobina (Algarrobina Cocktail)
If you like sweet drinks, you’ll be in paradise with this cold cocktail. It contains algarrobina, pisco and condensed milk. The Pisco Sour is by far, the most popular pisco cocktail in Peru and elsewhere, but you must also meet his “sister,” the Algarrobina Cocktail.
Algarrobina is a heavy syrup made from the pods of the “algarrobo” tree, that grows all over the coast in Peru, and it has a very intriguing flavor.
•1 3/4 cups of pisco
•1/2 cup of algarrobina
•1 can (397 g or 14 oz) of condensed milk
•16 ice cubes (or more, if you want it lighter)
Blend all the ingredients (except the cinnamon) in a blender.
Add the ice cubes and blend again. Verify the taste.
Serve in glasses and sprinkle the cinnamon.
