During our vacation in San Pedro de Atacama, one of the things I tried in different places was the Rica-Rica pisco sour. I love pisco sour, it’s the Chilean national drink, and the theRica-Rica gives a more marked freshness, adding flavors like mint and thyme.
The Rica-Rica is a herb native to the Atacama Desert. Available in Amazon (affiliated link). You can substitute with thyme or enjoy your Pisco sour.
In our house, the bar is my husband’s territory. At the most, I open a bottle of champagne … so this recipe is his.Print

My son brought me some rica-rica from Chile. What else can I do with it besides make pisco sours?
Any dessert or salad with mint, they belong to the same family.
