Peruvian Cavalry And Pisco

In the midst of the Peruvian High Plateau, along the shores of lake Titicaca at 4,000 mt altitude, captains of the Peruvian army cavalry drank pisco to endure the frosty temperatures and remain sharp to give commands. "A drink my captain!" was the saying. With the passing of time, the recipe reached the capital, Lima. Today, the Capitán is considered a refined drink and only served in martini glasses...
