Celebrate Pisco Sour Day at La Mar Restaurant

Who knew there was an actual “Pisco Sour Day”?

You can get acquainted with the Peruvian cocktail when La Mar in San Francisco commemorates the Peruvian “National Pisco Sour Day” with $5 Pisco Sours on Feb. 4, from 11:30 a.m. until closing; and on Feb. 5 from noon till last call.

It’s the perfect time to try the South American cocktail of pisco, lemon or lime juice, simple syrup, bitters and egg whites that give it a frothy top.
