El Campeon by The Penrose Recipe
el Jimador

This cocktail was developed by Justin Cairo of Penrose Bar, a neighborhood gastro pub located on the Upper East Side of Manhattan.

While visiting Cusco, Peru, Justin fell in love with the pisco sour and the many different variations of the sour that the locals offered, which inspired the creation of the El Campeon, amodern-day twist on a classic.
