Concocted by Edwin Cruz of Winsome in LA's Echo Park, this rum cocktail is reminiscent of winter spices.
1 oz. El Dorado 8 Year Old Rum
3/4 oz. Clear Creek Pear Eau de Vie
1/4 oz. Curacao Pierre Ferrand
3/4 oz. heavy cream
1/2 oz. 2:1 Rich Demerara syrup
1/2 oz. fresh Bartlett pear puree
2 strips of Pear Mostarda
Sprinkle of Nanami Togarashi
Grated nutmeg to taste
Combine all ingredients in a shaker until all ingredients are homogenized. Shake well with ice. Double strain into a large chilled coupe. The cocktail will be light and airy from the shake, with a nice freshness from the pear and just the slightest zing from the pear mostarda. Garnish with a sprinkle of Nanami Togarashi and freshly grated nutmeg.
