Hidden above the large criollo restaurant Brujas de Cachiche, Huaringas is Lima's center of cocktail culture. Right at the entrance, a visitor comes face to face with hundreds of glass jars, where native fruits like mora (Andean blackberry) and camu camu (an Amazonian "super fruit") are soaking in pisco. These concoctions are used to flavor the house's near-endless variations of pisco sours. For something unique, try the Bruja Sour, made with coca leaf. The rambling space has several sitting areas on three different levels, and brings in an exclusive crowd. Even when there's a DJ it's still a fairly relaxed spot. There's a light menu of Peruvian bar snacks to absorb the alcohol.
