Many of the nouveau martini-style cocktails are fruity and fun -- this follows that trend by using pear nectar, but with Cognac for richness and a wee bit of ginger for added intrigue.


1slice ginger, thin
1 1/2fluid ounces Cognac
1 1/2fluid ounces pear nectar
1/2fluid ounce Cointreau or Triple Sec
-- Ice cubes
-- Orange peel twist, for garnish


  1. Place ginger in a cocktail shaker and break it up with a muddler or the back of a spoon. Add Cognac, pear nectar and Cointreau to shaker; shake well. Strain through a fine-mesh sieve (such as a tea strainer) into a short tumbler half-filled with ice cubes.
  2. Garnish with a twist of orange peel, if you like.
