This is not your mother's Champagne cocktail. Lynn House's version aggressively blends pisco, absinthe and house-made pear nectar for an offbeat aperitif that's certain to get the party started.


  • 2 oz. Campo de Encanto Pisco
  • 1/8 oz. Pernod Absinthe
  • 1 oz. sparkling wine
  • ½ oz. lime juice
  • ½ oz. simple syrup
  • 1 ½ oz. pear/caraway nectar
  • 3 drops Angostura bitters


Combine all ingredients, except sparkling wine, and ice in shaker until well chilled. Add bubbly, stir and strain into a coupe glass. The cocktail is on the winter 2012 menu at Blackbird where Lynn House is the head mixologist.
