Mile High Pear Cocktail

pear cocktail

This cocktail pairs an American single malt with the bright aroma of pear and absinthe.

2 oz. American single-malt whiskey
½ oz. pear liqueur
¼ oz. simple syrup (1:1)
2 dashes Peychaud’s bitters
2 dashes orange bitters
Absinthe (to rinse)
Glass: Old Fashioned
Garnish: lemon twist

Rinse a glass with absinthe, discard the excess, then set aside. Stir the remaining ingredients with ice in a mixing glass until chilled. Strain the drink into the prepared glass. Twist a lemon peel over the drink to express the citrus oils, then use as garnish.
