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.
- In a cocktail shaker, combine the eau-de-vie, lemon juice, Chinese Five-Spice Syrup and egg white and shake well. Add ice and shake again. Strain into a chilled collins glass, then stir in the sparkling water. Pinch the lemon twist over the drink and drop it in.
