Brasserie Lebbe

Brasserie Lebbe cocktail with pear brandy, vanilla liqueur, lemon juice, and sparkling white wine

Brasserie Lebbe (named after a Belgian producer of fruity saison ales) is a light, magical brunch-style cocktail, developed by Neyah White at Nopa in San Francisco. The star ingredients are crisp pear brandy (eau de vie, rather than a sweeter pear liqueur), and Licor 43 or Tuaca (vanilla liqueurs with citrus and spice notes). It should be topped with a dry sparkling wine, rather than a sweet one; White uses a classic Champagne.

Ingredients

Instructions

Shake everything (except the sparkling wine) with ice. Strain into a flute glass or coupe and top with the sparkling wine.

Game Changer

This is a game changer. When you're at the liquor store, thinking, "Yeah, ok fine what does Ancho Reyes liquor get me?" you open the app, look up Chile liquor and see that it gets you like 11 new cocktails. This is addictive, and indeed worth the price. We're having a blast under quarantine. While some of the ingredients are kind of anonymous, the icons look like the Campari bottle, and the descriptions often tell you if Campari will work or if you need Aperol. If you <3 cocktails, get this.
