Drink recipe: Ginger pear bellini

Serve your classic bellini with a twist by adding sugar pear and ginger liqueur.



  • 1 sugar pear
  • 2 oz sparkling pear juice or ginger ale
  • 2 oz French ginger liqueur
  • 2 oz cognac liqueur
  • 8 drops black walnut bitters (optional)*
  • 8 oz chilled champagne, Prosecco or cava


1 Slice the pear very thinly and place the slices on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet; freeze until solid (the frozen pear slices will help keep the champagne cocktail icy cold).

2 Place the pear juice, French ginger and cognac liqueurs and the black walnut bitters in a cocktail shaker along with a handful of ice; shake well.

3 Place 2 frozen pear slices into each flute. Strain the liquid from the shaker into the two flutes and top with the champagne.

Tip: *Bitters refers to alcohol that has had botanical ingredients like roots, herbs or bark added. Originally created as medicinal tonics, they give a flavourful punch to cocktails.

Makes: 2 servings.
