1 tsp. huckleberry liqueur
1 tsp. Clear Creek pear brandy
Tools: mixing glass, shaker, strainer

Dice 1/4 of the pear into 1/4-inch cubes. Place in rocks glass with huckleberry liqueur, mint and brandy. Stir and set aside. Cut another 1/4 of the pear into large chunks.

Place in a mixing glass, add bitters and syrup and muddle to completely break down the pear. Add ice, rum, lemon juice, ginger juice and egg white. Shake for 30 seconds. Add ice cubes to the rocks glass. Strain ingredients from the mixing glass into the rocks glass. Garnish.
