Erratum: A charming letter from Old Peru Hand Chris V. (with no return address, or I'd answer and enjoy sharing reminiscences) pointed out that Huancayo is slightly north of Cuzco, not south. Luckily, south of the equator the sun still rises in the east, or as trip navigator I'd probably have steered us to Nome instead of Tierra del Fuego. Why I didn't mention the divine Pisco Sour cocktail in my review of Latin Chef? Because the latter has no liquor license. Made with delicious white Peruvian brandy, the Pisco Sour resembles a Ramos Fizz; in Lima, they often substitute it for tea at "tea time" (dinners tend to be very late), and a couple of them can be deadly (especially in the airport lounge awaiting your flight announcement). Along with the margarita, caipirinha, and mojito, it ranks among the world's greatest tropical cocktails.
