I invite you to celebrate San Francisco Cocktail Week and join me at a hands-on Pisco Cocktails 101 class at 18 Reasons. Learn about the history of the spirit that was first distilled in Peru 400 years ago and discover its long-time connection to San Francisco. Starting with the classic Pisco Sour, you’ll be making simple syrup, slicing limes, and cracking eggs in order to mix and shake your own cocktails. Bring an 8 oz. jar to take home a special coffee infused Pisco we’ll be making in class.

One of my best friends and his wife are owners of Carmo Cafe in New Orleans, and since I was going there for the International Food Bloggers Conference, we decided to do a Peruvian tasting at their cafe. I was thrilled to share Peruvian food with New Orleanians and we quickly decided on a menu: Pisco Sours, Ceviche Nikkei, and Suspiro Limeño — perfect for a city that loves cocktails, seafood, and dessert.
One of my favorite local roasters in San Francisco Is Four Barrel Coffee, and today I was very happy to stop by for a cappuccino on the house at their 3-year anniversary celebration.
