Saisonnière

Saisonnière cocktail with vodka and pear brandy

Saisonnière is French for “seasonal,” and it’s certainly a fitting name for this perfect pear sour from New York’s Lafayette restaurant. We had the good fortune of sipping our first Saisonnière just as the weather began to cool, and it immediately had us thinking of holiday meals and chilly nights.

The original recipe calls for Poire Williams, a French eau de vie made from the Williams pear. Any clear pear liqueur will do, as long as it isn’t too sweet or syrupy.

Ingredients

Instructions

Shake all ingredients with ice and strain into a small chilled cocktail or coupe glass.

Garnish with a sage leaf (if you have one) or a lemon twist. If you have high Dexterity points, try knotting the lemon twist around the base of the sage leaf.

Cocktail Party app on tablets and phones

Get the App

The Cocktail Party app puts this drink – and hundreds more – in your pocket, and tells you what you can make from the ingredients you have at home. It's the best $3.99 you'll ever spend on a drink.

Terrific Design!

Absolutely love this app. Gives a great visual representation of the ingredients and the user interface is well designed. Been using it to learn how to make cocktails, the descriptions are great about the drinks. As a novice barman, I love that I am learning the origin of the drink and alternative ways to make the drink. Be prepared to have a wide range of alcohol at you disposal! I can make heaps of drinks with the decent home collection I have, but seeing all the recipes what I could make gets me excited! Highly recommended, everyone loves the person who makes excellent drinks!
