French Pear

 

 

This cocktail was inspired by Everyday People Cafe, where I have spent many hours Living on a Lark!.  We have been nearly snowed in, spent glittery New Year’s Eves, eaten bowls and bowls of steaming risotto, and taught our kids how to eat mussels at this sweet local restaurant. Cheers to you, EPC!

 

French Pear
Serves 20 (in a rocks glass filled with ice)
 

5 c Pear Vodka (I like Grey Goose or Absolut)
9 c (about three bottles) Dry Sparkling Wine
1 ½ c
St. Germain Liqueur
Aromatic Bitters (by the drop, on the side)


Combine Vodka and St. Germain in a gallon jug.  Immediately before serving, add the Sparkling Wine and transfer the mixture to a serving container.  Serve over ice with bitters nearby -- add about 4 drops per glass (more or less based on preference -- but I like 4!)
