The Peary Bird is a fun cocktail with a great layer of flavors that will instantly transport you to the autumn days of cooler weather and falling leaves.

What I love about this drink is those layers of flavor, which include pear, vanilla, herbs, and nutmeg. It begins with Swan's Neck Vodka, a French grape-based vodka that is quite smooth. Add to that the vanilla notes of Tuaca and the herbal brandy of B&B along with fresh pear and nutmeg and you have a fantastic cocktail with a delightful balance of flavor.

B&B is one of those often looked over cocktail ingredients, with straight Benedictine being the general preference. It is a mix like this that proves that B&B is a viable mixer, even in more complicated recipes. I did try Benedictine here, and it didn't quite have the balance that B&B gives.


Steps to Make It

  1. Gather the ingredients.

  2. In a cocktail shaker, muddle pear, nutmeg and simple syrup.

  3. Add vodka, Tuaca, and B&B, and top with ice.

  4. Garnish with flamed orange zest.
