St. Germain has a pear-like

St. Germain has a pear-like flavor, so this pairing makes sense; it brightens the pear brandy without overwhelming it.

If this looks sweet but good

If this looks sweet but good otherwise, you might try what I did tonight- 1 oz each pear eau de vie and gin (I used Clear Creek and Voyager), .25 each St. Germain and lemon juice, and a bar spoon Clear Creek pear liqueur. Next time, I'll probably take the St. Germain down to a bar spoon, but otherwise I prefer this version as it lets the pear flavor through without getting too cloying.
