Are you consumed by an overwhelming desire to drink every time you look at Twitter these days? Same. Luckily, we've found some easy ways to make pisco cocktails that are the perfect blend of sweet, sour, and heat — perfect for the "enraged liberal snowflake."

Pisco Chile, the Chilean grape brandy which you probably know from Pisco Sours, is deliciously versatile. Have you ever had a Pisco Hibisco? Or a Polola? Here are three pisco cocktail recipes you can make at home (or, if you're too blinded by rage to make them yourself, all three have been added to the February cocktail menu at NYC bar Yerba Buena for your drinking pleasure).
