  • Summary

    [Photograph: Autumn Giles] A velvety roasted pear puree is the key to this batched bourbon drink that says fall without screaming it. Why this recipe works: Roasting the pears adds depth and concentrates their flavor by cooking out some of their liquid. Maple syrup adds necessary sweetness while deepening the earthy profile of the drink. Batching the mixer a few hours before your party allows for no-fuss presentation.

    Ingredients

    • For the Roasted Pear Puree:
    • 2 bartlett pears, cored and sliced into eighths
    • 3 1/2 tablespoons fresh juice, from two lemons
    • 1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
    • For the Bourbon Pear Mixer:
    • 1 cup roasted pear puree
    • 2 cups Four Roses Yellow Label Bourbon
    • 1/2 cup maple syrup
    • For each cocktail:
    • 1/4 cup Bourbon Pear Mixer
    • 3 tablespoons chilled sparkling wine (from 1 bottle)
    • Ice
    • Additional ground cloves for garnish
