Remedy for: Thirst
1.5 measures Clear Creek Williams Pear Brandy
1/2 measure Ginger Syrup
Pour Ginger Syrup and Pear Brandy in the bottom of a champagne flute. Top with Champagne. Lightly stir with straw. Garnish with citrus peel if you so desire.
Crisp, refreshing, and quite delicious. The Pear 75 is sophistication in a glass.
If I had been a passenger of the Titanic on that infamous night, I like to think that I would have walked up the bartender, calmly ordered a Pear 75, and toasted to a life well-lived. Dramatic? Yes, but this cocktail represents an era of class and elegance that is long forgotten. A time of corsets, crystal, rubies, and savior-vivre.
Drink to good health!
