1 | Pachamama (above)

Marylebone's Pachamama will be allowing visitors to create its own pisco infusions using one of three types of pisco spirits, and a host of seasonal British and Peruvian ingredients. Not only can you then drink your very own creation, but take some away with you in a personalized jar to continue the festivities at home. And all for £20. The team has also devised the Yacon Spritz, a special 'retox' cocktail made with pisco, yacon syrup (a medicinal substance used by the Incas) and aji chillis (an excellent source of vitamins A, B, C and E), so you can justify drinking as many as you like.

2 | Suhi Samba

The famous Sushi Samba is celebrating in grand fashion, with a weekend of Peruvian-themed cocktails devised especially by in-house guru, Richard Woods. It includes the Matcha Pisco, which pairs Matcha tea-infused pisco with orange liqueur and egg whites. And should you find yourself hungry after three or four of these, executive chef Claudio Cordoso has prepared a menu including crab tomales and scallop ceviche to perfectly complement the unique flavour of the drinks. Couple all of this with some of the best views in London, and you're set to party in impressive style.

3 | Coya

Mayfair's beautiful Coya is your most sophisticated pisco option. It offers an extensive menu of ceviche and tiradito (raw fish in a spicy sauce) dishes alongside a fully stocked pisco bar, which even serves some more exclusive barrel-aged cocktails, limited to just one per customer. In honour of Pisco Sour Day, Coya will be wheeling out a delicious new flight of three pisco cocktails, to be enjoyed together instead of just the one; the raspberry & thyme, rhubarb, and Williams pear combination is set to remain on the menu even once the special day is over.

4 | Pisco Embassy

Nestled in the heart of Islington is the concept bar Pisco Embassy, which takes up residence in the Comedor Bar & Grill every Friday and Saturday night. With its vibrant Peruvian spirit, this unique pop up bar opened its doors in November and has brought late night dancing and merriment to wintry London. Head bartender Jose Francisco-Modenese is a Peruvian native, so head here for the authentic experience on Pisco Sour Day. But make sure you're up for a late one – it opens at midnight, and doesn't shut until 5am.

5 | Señor Ceviche

Home to some of London's very best pisco sours, Soho's Señor Ceviche has the lively South American dining atmosphere nailed. Specialising in street food and ceviche, as inspired by the team's travels around Peru, this is the perfect place to go and pretend you are in Lima for a few hours, instead of rainy London. The menu comprises a host of authentically Peruvian cocktails, most of which are made with 1615 pisco, although there are gin, rum, vodka and tequila options too, if you find yourself piscoed out.
