Super Bowl weekend is finally here! But did you know that the first Saturday in February is also National Pisco Sour Day? Coincidence? We think not. For your weekend celebrations of American football keep your Latin traditions alive with these pisco cocktail recipes below.

You probably know the Pisco Sour, the most popular way of consuming pisco. Chilean Pisco is a versatile grape brandy with a rich flavor and heady floral perfume unlike those of any other spirit.

Pisco is no one trick pony, and even though it’s Pisco Sour Day, Pisco Chile wants you to try different kinds of pisco cocktails. These cocktails are for imbibers who enjoy a balance of sweet, sour and heat. Enjoy the Pisco Hibisco, Polola, and Mina Chilena recipes below.

You can taste them at home or at NYC hotspot Yerba Buena at 1 Perry Street which is exclusively adding all of them to their February cocktail menu.
