How to make the Pisco Sour Cocktail

Add all the ingredients to a shaker and fill with ice. Shake vigorously and strain into a highball glass or Champagne flute. Garnish with a lime wheel and 3 gentle drops of Angostura Bitters, which will settle in the foam of the cocktail. Using a straw, swirl the bitters into a simple design.
