I was given the address to GK Bistronomie, I turned on 25th street and drove passed the location twice. I drove back around with a bit more concentration and this small long galley way called my name with a bar at the end, perfectly adorned with infusions and apothecary bottles.
I knew I was in the right place.
All the time, we are asked about bars and a place for dinner and drinks. We finally found ours in Wynwood.
He wasted no time in finding the right barman to create his cocktails, and they didn’t disappoint.
Jossímar Luján comes by way of Peru specifically to create this menu, from La Casona del Pisco, which is considered one of the best bars in Arequipa. He previously worked with the owners on other projects and that’s how he found his way to Wynwood. What has come from it, is creative cocktails with deep knowledge on Peru’s native spirit, Pisco. Jossímar welcomed us with a smile and some great knowledge on his creations here at GK Bistronomie.
The cocktail menu is split into two sections: GKB Cocktails which are original cocktails made by Jossímar. The other section is Sours & Chilcanos, an ode to the more traditional cocktails in Peru with a twist.
For those that don’t know, the Pisco Sour is the spirit’s most popular cocktail. These sours are popping up in menus all over the United States as Pisco continues to grow in popularity. The Chilcano is a traditional Peruvian cocktail made up of ginger ale, bitters, lime juice and Pisco (Pro tip: If you like a Moscow Mule, you’ll love this South American take).
