Build over ice in mixing glass, shake for 15 secs or stir for 30, strain into coupe. Freshly pitted cherry garnish optional.


I was surprised how nicely reposado tequila and pear eau de vie played with each other. I wanted a blush from Combier Rouge, but scaled back on all but the main liquors to preserve a subtle balance and orchard notes.


Poured into mixing glass à la minute 5/14/11.

  • Surprisingly dry but agree w/ the other comments that it's not really greater than the sum of its parts.
  • Interesting fruit flavors, but somehow not greater than the sum of its parts. Used a tsp of cranberry liqueur and rhubarb bitters in lieu of cran bitters. — ★★★
