I have made many cocktails in my time, but I am absolute garbage at remembering ratios. For that reason, I really appreciate recipes that call for equal parts of ingredients—even I, with my very scattered brain, can remember something like that.
I always love the idea of pears more than the actual fruit, primarily because—like avocados—their “aw, hell yeah” window is very short. But pear brandy never fails me; the flavour is consistently good, the mouthfeel is never gritty, and the ABV hovers around 40 per cent.
