Celebrate 4th of July with Chilean Pisco – Star-Spangled Punch
Are you looking for a delicious tasting cocktail to cool off over the Fourth of July holiday? Try a Star-Spangled Punch.
The Star-Spangled Punch was created by David Wondrich and features Chilean Pisco. Whether for the 4th of July or a great tasting summer cocktail, the Star-Spangled Punch is the perfect way to cool down on a hot day.
Chilean Pisco is a spirit created by distilling wine made from grapes grown in the Coquimbo and Atacama regions of the country, fed with water that flows from the majestic Andes, then rested for a minimum of 60 days before bottling.
Chilean Pisco offers excellent versatility and can be served neat in a rocks glass, in highly curated cocktails or over ice in a punch bowl.
