French Pear

French Pear

5 cups pear vodka (I like Grey Goose or Absolut)

9 cups (about three bottles) dry sparkling wine

1 ½ cups St. Germain liqueur

Aromatic bitters (by the drop, on the side)

Combine vodka and St. Germain in a gallon jug. Immediately before serving, add the sparkling wine and transfer the mixture to a serving container. Serve over ice with bitters nearby – add about 4 drops per glass (more or less based on preference, but I like 4!).

Serves 20 (in a rocks glass filled with ice).
