Hans Hilburg • El Pisquerito; Cuzco, Peru
At this pisco-themed bar, Hilburg uses local slang to name his cocktails. Cholo fresco means "somebody who is fresh in every sense," he says. "Light, saucy, naughty, audacious . . . And what's fresher than cucumber, melon, mint and lime?"
- In a pint glass, muddle the mint leaves with the sugar and lime juice. Strain into an ice-filled cocktail shaker. Add the pisco, liqueur and cucumber juice; shake well. Strain into a chilled coupe. Garnish with the cucumber blossom and mint sprig.
