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!)

This app ROCKS!!!

I've used a number of mix drink apps, and this one is by FAR the BEST! I've made a couple dozen drinks so far, and they're delicious. It suits my quality wants while (more importantly) suiting my inherent laziness. You put in what you have on hand, and it automatically lists all the drinks you can make! There's info on all the ingredients, which is pretty neat to learn some backstory. What I truly like is I can click an ingredient and it shows how many more drinks I can make. It's pretty fun picking up a new item and seeing 8 new drinks to try. There's a setting on the iPad that locks the app on so people can switch on the mixing app without letting anyone out of it, so I leave it by the bar and people can use it without worry of people snooping around. ;) The combination of all the drinks and this app that makes searching for, and making a drink, easy peezy lemon squeezey, and gives a real feeling of sophistication.
