This Sunday ushers in the official start of fall, and because it’s another excuse to celebrate, I have a cocktail you can use to toast the change of seasons.
It’s called the Fall Classic from Grey Goose. In keeping with the flavors of autumn, the drink calls for ingredients like dark malt beer and La Poire, Grey Goose’s super-premium Anjou pear-flavored vodka. Perfect for taking along when she wants to go “watch the leaves turn colors”.
1 1/2 parts Grey Goose La Poire
1/2 part Crème de banana (substitute Galliano or triple sec)
1/2 part simple syrup
Pinch of Clove
Pinch of Cinnamon
Pinch of Nutmeg
4 parts dark malt beer
Pear slice for garnish
Fill a cocktail shaker with ice and add the first six ingredients. Shake well until condensation forms. Strain into a Pilsner glass filled with ice, top with beer and garnish with pear slice.
