The PEZ Cocktail

July 25th, 2008

So, I am moving to Portland soon, and this entails shipping a large number of bottles across country, some of which I don’t really think I’ll ever buy again. One of those? Mathilde Pear Liqueur, which I got for the pear cocktails competition a while back, and didn’t use much of since. It’s pretty damned sweet, and I spent much of the time mixing with it wishing I had something that I could use in larger quantities without things getting thick and syrupy. So now I have just a little bit of it left, and thought I’d try playing with it, so I didn’t have to take it with me.

I came up with a cocktail that tastes like PEZ candy. Drink at your own risk. Personally I hate PEZ and have always figured that only the little dispensers keep them in business. Ah well, such is life.

The PEZ Cocktail

1 1/2 oz. Gin
1/2 oz. Mathilde Pear Liqueur
1/2 oz. Benedictine
2 dashes of Fees Orange Bitters

Stir over ice and strain into cocktail glass, repent.

Can’t say as I really recommend it, unless you like orange PEZ more than I do.
