Think of this as a Peruvian Moscow Mule but the bitters add a really nice spice to it. Invented somewhere in the early 1900s in Peru it can be prepare with simple syrup and bitters or without. While the bitters do add a nice spice to the drink, if you choose to prepare it without syrup and bitters, I would add an additional oz (30mls) of ginger beer. The chilcano does predate the Moscow Mule but it is unknown if the chilcano had any influence on the creation of the moscow mule in Los Angeles.
