Ade Adepitan’s Pisco Sour

“I first tried a Pisco Sour when I was in Lima, Peru and it’s absolutely lovely!”

Ade Adepitan, Television presenter and Paralympian 

Ade Adepitan MBE, is a Nigerian born British television presenter and wheelchair basketball player.  Ade was a member of the Great Britain wheelchair basketball team that won the bronze medal at the 2004 Summer Paralympics in Athens and the gold medal at the 2005 Paralympic World Cup in Manchester.  As a presenter, he has hosted a range of travel documentaries and sports programmes for the BBC.

Ade’s wife, Linda, asked him why there are only 3 glasses out for a recipe for 4 people and he says it’s because 2 of those people are Scottish!
