There’s something magical about bubbles – they always bring a smile to your face and lift your spirit. They’re enchanting even when mixed in cocktails.
Take this seasonal Pear Bellini. A mixture of pure pear juice and Poire William, topped with a lively bubbly, this is a cocktail that’s easy to make, and even easier to drink. Plus it fairly screams Holiday Party… Cin-cin!
