Easy Sparkling Wine Pear Cocktail Recipe

Dear Vancity Girlfriends,

Sparkling Wine Pear Cocktail
We love to get together to unwind and have a drink or two.  From my previous post, the Chocolate Martini Cocktail, was a heavy hitter, so Carolyn took over the drink menu.  Now here is an easy, light and fluffy cocktail recipe that you can enjoy before dinner.  It's a recipe that can fit in a messenger bag and not be noticed.  When I first saw Carolyn I thought she forgot about bringing any alcohol.  Of course she wouldn't be so foolish.  

So out of the bag comes out a can of halved pears and a bottle of sparkling wine.  That's all that you need for this simple sparking wine pear cocktail.  

1 can of pear halves
1 bottle of sparkling wine

Strain the juice from the pears and puree the pears with 2 tablespoons of juice or as needed.  (We used a hand blender to puree).  Spoon a few tables of the pear puree into the glass.  Pour the sparkling wine on top to watch the combination fizz and enjoy.  It is a light sparkly pear tasting cocktail.  

Even though it's not a martini, the martini glass still suits this drink well.  I'll put champagne flutes on my wish list as I do love bubbly drinks.  

We had a lot of fun trying out this sparkling wine cocktail recipe.  Give it a try at your next girl's night and tell us what you think!  See you next month for another Vancity Girlfriends Cocktail.
