pear_mezcal4


Decoder Ring

1 ½ oz Mezcal [Fidencio]
.75 oz Spiced Pear Liqueur [St. George Spirits]
.75 oz Licor 43

Stir with ice, strain into a cockail glass.  Garnish with pear slice.


Guess what? It’s time for our 5th (!) installment in the bottle swap series. As a brief refresher, the Bottle Swap ™ is that thing Garnish Girl and I do where we each buy a bottle of something, and then trade half of that bottle with the other person. So, for the price of one bottle, we each end up with two things on our wish lists. It’s a win win. Previous installments included ginger liqueur, Ancho Reyes, Suze (hers; mine), and banana liqueur. Now it’s time to get down with St. George Spiced Pear! Be sure to check out Katie’s Spiced Pear Punch before you read any further! Continue reading

Bottle Swap Collabo Part 3: Giffard Banane du Bresil


Pratfall

1 1/2 oz Blended Scotch (ideally on the peaty side) {Mackinlay Shackleton]
3/4 oz Banana Liqueur [Giffard]
1/2 oz Maple Syrup
1/4 oz Apricot liqueur [Rothman and Winter]

Stir with ice, strain into an ice filled rocks glass. Garnish with banana wedge.


About a year and a half ago, I teamed up with Katie from Garnish Blog for a series of bottle swap posts. To refresh your memory, the idea is we each buy a different bottle, trade half, and make some drinks. Last time we did the King’s Ginger and Ancho Reyes. It was such a blast, we decided to do it again with two more bottles. As luck would have it, shortly after we made the trade, Katie announced she was pregnant. So we put the bottle swap series on hold until she was off the wagon again. Now that she’s officially a mom, it’s time for the third Bottle Swap intallment, starring Giffard Banane du Bresil.
