This instructable shows to make a cocktail with a floating cream top. While drinking, sip the juice cocktail through the cream top. The taste of this cocktail is like a nutty pear pudding, and because this is a mixed drink with such a heavy fruit juice, you definitely do not need expensive liquors/liqueurs. I show how to make a single drink, and it is a fair amount of work for a single drink. However, this would be a great finishing dessert drink for a party or just to show off a fancy, tasty cocktail to your friends. At the end, I provide directions on how to make this for 4 people. This is far from being healthy and should be treated as more of a dessert than a beverage you'll continue to drink all night although it is quite tempting. It's sweet and creamy but packs a punch. I came up with the name based on the inclusion of brandy (re: plum pudding), pear juice, and cream.
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.
