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 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.
