A Sweet, Bubbly Cocktail For Parties

Have you ever seen those bottles of pear brandy at the liquor store? I mean the bottle that has a whole pear inside it? Pretty cool. Not cheap, but pretty cool. And let me tell you, it tastes even better than it looks.

You have to remember when you are looking to buy something like pear brandy that even though it’s a little more on the expensive side, about $45 bucks a bottle…you’re only going to be using a shot or so at a time.

So this bottle of pear brandy is more like an investment…but it’ll be around for a while!

All you need besides pear brandy is some prosecco and a small can or pear nectar. So unlike a pear martini, this cocktail has got some bubbles going on. You can set out glasses ahead of time with the brandy and pear nectar and then set out the prosecco on your bar so guests can serve themselves.

What Other Flavors Of Brandy Can I Use In This Drink?

Any flavors that you like! Just follow the same measurements in this recipe and use all your favorites. There’s so many different flavors of brandy at the liquor store, and if you can’t find the nectar to match just use juice.

  • Apple Brandy
  • Peach Brandy
  • Blackberry Brandy
  • Pineapple Brandy
  • Apricot Brandy

And the list goes on. You can even set out a whole bunch of brandy bottles and have a cocktail bar set up so your guests can choose their favorite combinations!

If you think this drink is going to be sweet enough you can skip the sugared rim. The sugared rim does add a fun look, especially if you’re having a party but it’s not something that definitely adds to the flavor of this pear cocktail.

You can even use this drink recipe and make mocktails for the kids! Instead of brandy, use grenadine in the bottom of a glass then pour in your juice of choice and top off with seltzer. Garnish is key for kids so definitely try the sugared rim and/or add some fruit for garnish.
