San Francisco Takes A Punch!

Celebrate Pisco Punch on the Wings of Cherubs at Cantina…

I so wish I were in San Fran tomorrow (Monday, December 3)!

Peruvian Author (and No-Cal resident) Guillermo Toro-Lira will read from his new book, Wings of Cherubs. Toro-Lira intertwines historical fact with cocktail lore, pertaining to that controversial South American spirit, Pisco.

The Spanish edition of Wings of Cherubs won a Gourmand World Cookbook Award 2007 as the Best Wine Literature Book of the World written in Spanish. The fascinating story unravels the secrets of Pisco Punch, which is made with Peruvian Pisco brandy—a very popular staple in San Franscisco, California, at the end of the 1800s and beginning of the 1900s, due to trading with South America. With cocktail classics on the rise, Pisco is once again being served in high-end bars, worldwide.

Complimentary apptizers and Pisco Punch will be served at the event, and signed copies of Wings of Cherubs will be available for purchase for $19.95.

This festive and informative party takes place at Cantina (580 Sutter Street at Mason, next to Hotel Rex) at 7:00 pm on Monday December 3, 2007.
