There is something exciting about the back to school season that goes well beyond the new pencil case. I love watching my children make friends with new classmates just as much as I adore meeting the new classroom moms. Every year I host a back to school moms brunch and this cocktail is one of those favorites that keeps reappearing on the menu. Light enough for brunch, but with an added kick that puts everyone at ease. Im using Stemilt Bartlett Pears in this recipe because their harvested in September, making these sweet pears a fresh addition to this crown pleasing cocktail.
