Girl From The North Country
1 1/2 oz. dry gin
1/2 ounces pear Brandy
1/2 oz fresh lemon juice
1/2 oz lingonberry syrup or raspberry syrup
1 slice of pear, for garnish
Shake the gin, brandy, lemon juice, and syrup with ice until well chilled. Strain into a cocktail glass. Garnish with a slice of pear, if you wish.
Vikre makes an amazing Gin Selection. I highly recommend trying the “Boreal juniper Gin” for this recipe.
This is a really refreshing drink that uses winter fruit that is in season during the holidays.
The colors are intoxicating and not too sweet.
I LOVE the large ice cubes for these drinks. They chill the cocktails perfectly without watering them down.
My kids and I love pears ..if one gets too ripe..I now have a plan for it!
Happiness in a glass.
