Everyone is looking for that perfect cocktail. The mix that will please every palette from the bourbon swillers to the tea sippers. And ladies and gentlemen–This. Is. It. Not too sweet, not too boozy. Just. Right.
A friend of mine introduced me to the simplicity of this drink at Book Club one evening. It is simplicity in itself. Some pear nectar, something fizzy, some brandy or slices of fruit for extra credit and you’re sipping away at something that everyone loves. It’s celebratory, tasty, simple and just perfect for most any occasion. New Years Eve? Yes. Your bridal shower brunch? Yes. The signature cocktail at your wedding? Of course! It’s easy to make virgin–just offer up some sparkling cider or even some soda or seltzer in place of the sparkling wine. As for which bubbly to use, I’m a big fan of prosecco for the combination of price point and taste.
It’s one of those divine combinations that doesn’t even need a recipe. Just nectar topped with sparkle and sipped. Love, love, love.
