After rain, sleet, snow, and barely escaping falling trees, I think we deserve a big strong cocktail!!! That can only be provided by Pisco, a brandy-type liquor made in Peru but recently available here as well.

Makes two cocktails:
- 8 oz. Peruvian Pisco (or substitute with tequila)
- 6 oz. diet grapefruit soda
- Juice from 1/2 a lime
Fill a tumbler with ice, pour the Pisco, grapefruit soda and lime juice and shake (carefully). Pour into a martini glass and garnish with lime slices. Salud!
