Brincadeira

Brincadeira sparkling cocktail with Cocchi Americano, lemon juice, pear liqueur, white Port, absinthe, and Champagne

The Brincadeira (the name is Portuguese for “make believe”) is a specialty at Le Glass in Paris, invented by head bartender Keltoum Arrachidi. The flavor has to be tasted to be believed – it’s a rich, almost-too-ripe pear flavor buffeted by citrus, herbs, and the bubbles of a good sparkling white wine.

Ingredients

Instructions

Add all ingredients (except the sparkling white wine) to a tall ice-filled glass. Stir to combine, and top with the sparkling wine. Garnish with a lemon twist or pear slice (or both! Or neither!)

Really Good App

We downloaded the app after seeing it as one of the top posts on /r/cocktails, and we've been playing around with it and adding our ingredients to the list. While it's not an all inclusive list of ingredients (missing some creme de ), it's a solid overall app and tosses out some truly spectacular recipes based on what you have in your liquor cabinet. Minor quibbles for an otherwise fantastic application!
