This Pisco cocktail is a lovely fruity and gingery combination!
This drink was inspired by a cocktail we had on a trip out to California last summer where we had this fantastic drink made with fresh blackberries and pisco. We had stopped for lunch at a spot in San Fransisco where this drink was the bartender’s creation which he called the Market Smash. Full of fresh berries and fruit from the valley, the drink really felt like California in a glass.

The fresh berries and muddled fruit were fresh and flavorful and with plenty of pisco flavor. Since we were there early, we ended up chatting with the bartender who was all too happy to share stories about San Fransisco and its relationship with Pisco.

San Francisco has a long history with Pisco, with sailors and traders bringing bottles along with them from Peru and Chile as far back as the 1830s. Famous pisco drinks like the Pisco Sour and Pisco Punch have roots in San Francisco, so it is no surprise that we found another good pisco drink in San Fran!
What Ingredients are Needed for the St Pisco Smash Cocktail
- Ginger Beer
- St Germain Elderflower Liqueur
- Lemon Juice
We both liked this smash enough that it inspired us to buy a bottle of Pisco to try to recreate our San Francisco adventure!
