Perfect Pear cocktail

5 Mar

I’ve a bottle of white port in fridge and as much as I love a white Port & tonic tonight I’m craving something richer. So a bit of googling later and I find this page of Port cocktail recipes.

Immediately the Perfect Pair catches my eye and fortunately I have a bottle of Tawny Port waiting to be open and within minutes I’m able to mix one:

  • 1 1/2 oz Tawny Port
  • 1oz Pear Eau de Vie
  • 1/4 simple syrup
  • stir all ingredients with ice and strain to serve

And soon I’m enjoying it

And what a cocktail!

Sweet ( but not too sweet, just nicely so) , rich, complex, deep and very, very moreish this is a drink I’ll definitely return to.
