Like many others around the world, chef Bobby Flay believes Oscar night is cause for celebration! This year, Bobby is hosting a 400 guest event at the South Beach Food & Wine Festival. His signature drink for the evening is a Sparkling Pear Cocktail – if it’s good enough for his friends, I bet it’s good enough for mine! Enjoy!
Sparkling Pear Cocktail
16 oz. pear nectar
2 bottles champagne, prosecco or other sparkling wine, very cold
1 pear, halved, seeded and thinly sliced
Thirty minutes before serving, place the champagne flutes in the freezer to chill. Place 2 tbsp. of the pear nectar and 1 slice of pear in the bottom of each glass, top with the sparkling wine. Serve immediately.
