This smoothed the jagged edge off a particularly rough week and restored a sense of general benevolence. Now if only it counted towards my goal of five fruit and veg per day. *Sigh*

This is a great cocktail. For these, I usually make individual servings of simple syrup: a 1/2 teaspoon or so of sugar in each glass plus a tablespoon of warm/hot water, stirred until the sugar dissolves.

Okay. So, I searched my Fred Meyer looking for pear nectar. Found everything BUT. I ended up picking up peach nectar instead. I made the simple syrup myself. Just with the peach/pear mixture, this is POTENT. And really has a bite. I know it's not exactly the same and I sure tried to find pear nectar. (If anyone knows, please let me know where you got it.) Really took the edge off my day.

This is a truly *delicious* cocktail. I highly recommend using a good Pear Brandy though. A cheaper brand will have a "fake" pear flavor. I used Clear Creek Pear Brandy -- super smooth. I served with a cheese/bread/fruit platter and every last drop was enjoyed.

Truly perfect for a Thanksgiving day cocktail. I'd found Asian Pear Cider at the farmer's market and used it for the pear nectar.
