Camu-Camu Sour (Cocktail)

A Colombian take on the famous Peruvian pisco sour, our camu-camu sour is made with Colombia’s very own viche—an alcohol distilled from sugar cane—with a touch of refreshing eucalyptus. Thanks to the creativity of Tom Hydzik, partner and bartender at Mesa Franca, for this refreshing new drink. Experiment with the entire range of Selva Nevada’s Super Fruits for your parties and special occasions.


  • camu-camu concentrate (or pulp)
  • eucalyptus leaves (fresh or dried)
  • viche (or white rum or vodka)
  • sugar syrup


  1. Place 2 eucalyptus leaves in a cocktail shaker, pour sugar syrup over them, and gently crush the leaves to release their menthols.
