- 2 ounces pear and rhubarb cream (recipe below)
- 1 ounce seltzer
- orange zest
Combine all ingredients except seltzer in shaker. Shake vigorously. Strain and top with seltzer. Garnish with grated orange zest.
To make the pear and rhubarb cream:
Make a pear and rhubarb syrup with a 1:1 ratio sugar and water. Add pears and rhubarb to extract flavor. Taste as the ingredients steep until the syrup reaches the desired balance of pear and rhubarb. Combine 1 oz of the syrup with 1 oz of cream.
