This fresh, wintry cocktail works only if both the pear liqueur and the champagne are well chilled. If you like, rim the glass with citrus juice and dip in sugar.


  • 1 ounce pear eau de vie
  • 4-5 ounce champagne
  • 1 frozen pear wedge or strip of pear, for garnish


  1. Pour the pear eau de vie into a champagne flute or a coupe glass.
  2. Fill the rest of the glass with champagne.
  3. Garnish with a frozen pear wedge.
