There are lots of options for celebrating the holidays with friends that don't involve a turkey and stuffing, like going out for sushi instead. Toronto's Miku, known for its aburi (flame-seared) sushi and cocktails, is celebrating the holiday season with this cocktail, which combines the flavours of pear, cinnamon and brandy. You can make it at home with this recipe.
Stir all ingredients, except garnish, on ice until well mixed. Strain into a carafe and warm in a warm water bath, or gently in the microwave until warm.
Serve in vintage crystal, topped with freshly grated cinnamon and pear slices.
