A good cocktail needs a balance of flavors, whether sweet, spicy, bitter, tart, or simply strong. This cocktail balances sweet Licor 43 and pear nectar with subtly fruity Southern Comfort and bracing bitters. Though a tablespoon of one ingredient (or 2 dashes of another) may not seem like much, you'll taste the difference if you leave one out.

Ingredients

Directions

Fill a cocktail shaker or small pitcher with ice. Add the whiskey liqueur, pear nectar, Licor 43 and bitters. Cover and shake vigorously until thoroughly mixed and chilled, about 30 seconds. In general, the drink is ready by the time the shaker mists up. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Serve with the pear. Drink. 

Cook's Note

Licor 43 is a sweet Spanish liquor made with 43 different herbs and spices. It has a pronounced vanilla flavor with a slight citrus note.
