Curated this slightly. Added

Curated this slightly. Added garnish to the ingredients. Cleaned up the "creator" attribution. Added date as 1920 (which is around 90 years ago - see the other Pisco Sour in KC). Changed drink from Original Creation to Unknown.

A few questions - would a 1920's era Victor Morris have had a blender to mix this drink? Can you clarify the step after the blending? It sounds like the intent is to shake the blended ingredients over ice for 10 seconds, then strain into a glass.
