Note: I've done this recipe with the idea that not everyone knows a four count pour, doesn't have a Boston shaker, etc. but still has enough kitchen gear to be able to make this drink.
Step 1: Ingredients and Tools
-1 pony (1 oz or 2 tbsps) White Brandy
-1 jigger (1.5 oz or 3 tbsps) Amaretto
-Pear Juice (3-4 oz or 1/3-1/4 cup)
-1/8 tsp (or a few drops) Vanilla
-1/4 cup Heavy Cream
-Ice (not shown)
-Collins or a Highball Glass
-Large Glass (for chilling)
-Liquid Measuring Cup
-Jigger/Pony Combo (or tbsp/tsp set)
-Long stirring spoon/swizzel (or a butter knife)
Step 2: Mix Vanilla and Cream
Note: I don't have a 1/8 tsp, so I approximated it. It's a few drops of vanilla.
Step 3: Pour Base Ingredients
Top with pear juice until glass is 2/3 full.
Step 4: Ice and Strain
Strain mixture back into the Collins/Highball glass once chilled.
Step 5: Top With Vanilla Cream
Note: Cream wants to float, but it's good to be careful.
Step 6: Garnish
Alternative Garnish: You can also top with a swirl of caramel or crushed toffee.
Step 7: Alternative Directions for 4 Drinks
Combine 1 cup Heavy Cream with 1/2 tsp Vanilla, stir, and return to the fridge.
Mix 1/4 cup Brandy, 3/4 cup Amaretto, and 2 cups Pear Juice. Chill in the fridge.
Pour pear mixture equally between 4 Collins/Highball glasses.
Follow steps 5-6 for each glass.
