The Oregon Anjou

Prep Time
Fresh Green Anjou pears are put on the pedestal they belong in this flavorful libation. Handcrafted Pinot Gris syrup adds another layer of complexity that balances the drink with a subtly dry finish. Created by Kelley Swenson of Portland, OR.
  • Cocktail
  • 1.5 ounces puree of fresh USA Green Anjou pear
  • 1.5 ounces vodka
  • ½ ounce Pinot Gris syrup (see recipe below)
  • ½ ounce fresh squeezed lemon juice
  • ¼ ounce pear liqueur, such as Clear Creek Pear Brandy or Aqua Perfecta Pear Eau de Vie
  • Pear slice for garnish
  • Pinot Gris Syrup
  • 1 cup Pinot Gris wine
  • 1 cup granulated sugar

For syrup: Combine Pinot Gris and sugar in a small saucepan. Bring just to a simmer and stir until sugar dissolves. Cool. Refrigerate until cold.

For cocktail: Combine all cocktail ingredients in a shaker with 2-3 ice cubes. Shake 30 seconds until thoroughly chilled. Strain into a glass and serve immediately garnished with a paper thin pear slice.
