My Gilded Vanilla Pear Sparkler is a glitzy, French 75 inspired sparkling cocktail nuanced with an elegant seasonal flavour profile and premium ingredients (including a 24 karat gold infused Gin!). Inspired by all things glittering and gold, Eau Claire Distillery's Limited Edition Christmas Gin  combines with Brut Prosecco, Italian vanilla liqueur, bright lemon juice and a stunning Honeyed Vanilla Pear Syrup where Bosc pears are poached in decadent Canadian honey alongside Tahitian vanilla extract. The result is glamorous, gold infused winter cocktail that's equal parts creamy, crisp and refreshing -- and it couldn't be easier to mix up at home!

  • 1 oz Christmas Gin
  • 3 oz Brut Prosecco I used Bottega Gold
  • 1/2 oz freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1/4 oz Galliano
  • 3/4 oz Honeyed Vanilla Pear Syrup recipe to follow
  • Optional Garnish
  • Pear fan
  • Sparkler


  • Yield: Approximately 1/2 a cup enough for 6 cocktails
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 1 cup honey
  • 2 cups Bosc pear
  • 1 tbsp pure vanilla extract


  1. Chill your coupe glass.
  2. Start by making your Honeyed Vanilla Pear Syrup. In a saucepan over medium / high heat, combine 1 1/2 cups water with 1 cup honey. Bring to a boil.
  3. Once boiling, reduce to a simmer and add chopped pears and vanilla extract. Stir boiling mixture constantly for 20 minutes. Remove from heat and allow to cool for 30 minutes.

  4. Strain the saucepan contents into a bowl over a fine mesh strainer, using a mixing spoon to aid in separation if necessary. If you like, you can strain the syrup a second time using a cheesecloth to ensure a completely smooth texture.
  5. Reserve the Honeyed Vanilla Pear Syrup (bowl contents) for the cocktail. The Honeyed Vanilla Pear Compote left in the strainer is also delicious. Both will keep for up to a week, refrigerated.

  6. Add Honeyed Vanilla Pear Syrup to an airtight container. It will keep refrigerated for up to 3 weeks.

  7. Begin preparing your Gilded Vanilla Pear Sparkler by adding 1 oz of Eau Claire Distillery Christmas Gin and 1/4 oz of Galliano to your chilled coupe glass.

  8. Add 1/2 oz of freshly squeezed lemon juice.
  9. Add 3/4 oz of Honeyed Vanilla Pear Syrup.

  10. Stir to combine.

  11. Once combined, top your chilled coupe glass off with 3 oz of Prosecco. Give the cocktail one final stir.
  12. Garnish with a pear slices and a cocktail pique to form a fan and / or a sparkler and enjoy immediately!
