Palisade's Pear Fizz

  • SERVINGS: Makes 1 drink

Sean Kenyon, bar manager at the Squeaky Bean in Denver, created this fizz to showcase Peach Street Distillers' Jack and Jenny pear eau-de-vie (clear fruit brandy). The distillery uses Bartlett pears grown in Palisade, Colorado, a high-elevation spot where the fruit develops an especially high concentration of natural sugars.
