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)
