Every cocktail den north of Lima makes a pisco sour these days, but it took rotisserie-chicken kingpin Rodolfo Mayor of local Peruvian chain Pio Pio to dedicate an entire drinkery to the South American spirit. Jackson Heights gets the velvet-rope treatment as this narrow, brick-walled bar fills to capacity with a trendy, Latin-leaning crowd eager to sample its seventeen varieties of pisco. Ultrapremiums are served straight for clarified sipping; the rest are mixed into housemade concoctions created by one-time Apothéke bartender ≠Esteban Ordõnez. The Coca Sour ($10) is frothy with La Diablada Pisco, agua coca liqueur, lemon juice, egg whites, simple syrup, and orange bitters; the signature Alturas ($10), meanwhile, is fashioned with Pisco 100, aloe vera, lemon juice, and a purée of prickly pear.
