Pear 75

As you might guess, this is a variation on the classic French 75 that’s made with pear brandy. I like Poire Williams a lot but it’s very assertive, so I tend to use it in conjunction with some other base to keep the pear from becoming too dominant.

Pear 75
  • 1 oz Poire Williams eau-de-vie
  • 1 oz old tom gin
  • 1/2 oz lemon juice
  • 1 tsp simple syrup
  • brut champagne to fill
Fill an 8-10 ounce glass halfway with crushed ice. Combine all but champagne with ice in a shaker and strain into the prepared glass. Fill with Champagne and stir gently. Lemon twist.

I did two versions: one with crushed ice, one without. I could go either way. The ice one was very cold. The up one was soft and velvety.
