  • A bit too sour and pear got lost so I upped the eau de vie to 1 1/2 ish. I guess similar effect would be to lower lemon and cognac to 3/4 for less boozy variation. Still nice either way.
  • Used Hudson Valley small batch pear brandy. I felt it needed just a little extra lemon juice to brighten it up — ★★★
  • Terrific pear flavor. — ★★★★★

Made with St George Pear Brandy, Pierre Ferrand 1840 and Combier Triple Sec. Divine. Like rich pear drops with a satisfying alcoholic warmth that lingers. Perfect accentuation of a beautiful pear note. 

Used Raynal VSOP brandy instead of cognac, and Hudson Valley small batch distilled pear brandy (80proof). I felt it benefited from 1.5 oz lemon juice to brighten it up a bit.
