Not too much of a story around this one. I think I wanted to try Green Chartreuse and apricot. The rest just grew around it (I’ve always like tequila and Chartreuse).
The name came from the point in time I created this. It was December of 2020. The year was ending and a vaccine was coming. I was hopeful, for at least a little while. Now, however, I need another drink.
This started with the desire to pair (sorry) pear with mezcal, and then didn’t stray far. Some Cynar for bitterness and lemon for acidity. Depending on the pear liqueur you might add in some agave, as I did here. And the salt just enhances the pear flavor, to me.
The name was a sort of knee-jerk inspiration, and I don’t think I could better it. Drink from a clean toed pump if you have one.
