Cook Time:
Imperial (US)
Make a delicious cocktail with this pear sauce, or swirl it with yogurt or ice cream. It's a great way to use overly ripe pears.
  • 2 ripe pears
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 1 tsp grated ginger
  • 1/2 cup Sparkling Traminette
  • 1 tsp Poire William pear liqueur
  • 2 tsps gingered pear sauce

Make the pear sauce first. Peel, core, and coarsely chop 2 ripe pears. Cook them in a pan with sugar and ginger until soft. Cool and then purée until very smooth. 

For the cocktail, pour Poire William liqueur into a champagne flute and add the pear sauce. Then add Sparkling Traminette. Garnish, if you like, with a sturdy slice of fresh pear dipped in lemon juice to prevent browning.
