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!)

I love this app

Super practical, informative, easy to use, even inspiring for lovers of cocktails or just those curious to try a few recipes over time and keep an inventory of favorite recipes handy. Updated fairly judiciously, thankfully, so it isn’t cluttered up with unproven concoctions resulting in an overwhelmingly-sized library with too many ridiculous or middling cocktails. Attractive, welcoming, well-designed UI.
