The Bären Pear

As promised, here is another tasty cocktail with Bärenjäger.  The original was a bit sweet for my taste so I tweaked it and got the levels just right.

The Baren Pear

The Bären Pear
1 oz Bärenjäger
1 oz Pear Vodka
1 oz Triple Sec
1/2 oz Lemon Juice
10 Small Mint Leaves
1) Combine ingredients in a shaker with ice
2) Shake until well chilled
3) Strain into a chilled cocktail glass
*) Double strain if you want to remove the mint bits

To add a bit of credence to the deliciousness of this cocktail I’ll simply say that Elisabeth has had 3 in the last week.  That says a lot.  The pear and honey flavors play together very nicely, neither overwhelming the other.  The triple sec and lemon add nice citrus notes with just a touch of sourness.  Finally, the mint plays through subtly.  This is a great end of summer drink.  Enjoy, friends.
