Serves 1

25ml pear liqueur (we use Xanté) 25ml vodka (Ab­so­lut, for pref­er­ence)

25ml el­der­flower cor­dial

20ml lemon juice 12.5ml ba­sic sugar syrup

Soda wa­ter, to top 1 slice pear, to gar­nish This sim­ple, re­fresh­ing cock­tail de­liv­ers punchy flavours and has be­come a firm favourite of ours in a short space of time. Xanté is a co­gnac-based pear liqueur that’s read­ily avail­able on­line and in most spe­cial­ist spirit stores.

Com­bine all the in­gre­di­ents ex­cept the soda in a Boston tin. Shake with ice for 10-15 sec­onds, then strain into an ice-filled Collins glass (or any other tall glass). Top with soda and gar­nish with a slice of pear.
