Poire plus

Friday, October 7, 2011

Have no fear, faithful readers; your requests for an autumnal cocktail are about to be answered! While I think most cocktails are equal opportunity drinkers, there's something to be said for the particular flavors of fall, and this little libation is my very favorite thing to sip as the leaves start to turn.


Poire Plus

Fill a champagne flute with 3/4 oz of Poire Williams or other pear eau-de-vie, then top with your favorite sparkler. Garnish with a pear slice, if desired.


This is another outrageously simple cocktail, but there's no fighting such a divine drink! I would chose a fairly dry Champagne or Crémant for this libation, so the flavors of the pear brandy won't be overpowered by a sweeter sparkler.

Cheers, darlings, and be on the lookout for many more fall flavors in the weeks to come!

  24. Delicious! I love finding new uses for Poire William. My favorite cocktail recipe ever is a lemon, pear and rosemary martini. You make a simple syrup with sugar, water, and rosemary. Then you let it cool and pour it into a pitcher with Poire William, fresh lemon juice, vodka and crushed ice. Amazing and will knock you off your feet unless you use a LOT of ice!
