  • I used Rittenhouse and Black Star pear eau de vie. This is a nice autumn cocktail but one that I need to be in the mood to drink. It is aromatic but not delicate. — ★★★

The pear flavor in this cocktail is intense; the st. germain and eau de vie definitely amplify each other. The rye is very much in the background. I used clear creek pear brandy and rittenhouse rye. If I were to try again I'd halve the st. germain and eau de vie and maybe try adding a little punt e mes if the drink seemed incomplete.
