A recipe for Pear and Bubbles, a cocktail with pear puree and champagne. Pear and bubbles, pear puree with champagne. How was everyone’s Easter weekend? I had people over to watch Game of Thrones, made paella and saltine panna cotta. I also forced my guests to eat crazy totally disgusting Jelly Bellys. If you don’t already know, Jelly Bellys has this product called “Bean Boozled,” where in they basically have twin jelly beans. One is the good delicious twin, and the other is the evil disgusting twin. They look the exact same, so if you get a gross one then you have been bean boozled. I said this all night in my best impression of Joey from Friends when he is auditioning to be a game show host for a game called bamboozle. It was fun. Let me just tell you, the gross flavors are totally totally so disgusting. I think the worst is barf, jelly belly nailed the acidity in that one. I would have loved to be in the room while their flavor scientists were taste testing. We had some left over boxes and I tried to convince my boyfriend to bring them into work and leave them in a dish in the kitchen for April fools. He didn’t. Probably because he is a really nice guy, and I would have totally done it because I am mean.

Gross Jelly Bellys have nothing to do with this cute little drink we have. Do you like the pear star? It is really easy to make. I am also very into bubbly drinks. Jenny is a huge bubbly drink fan, and whenever we go out for lunch we now both get something bubbly. It is so nice in the middle of the afternoon because it’s not some crazy heavy sugar thing. Bookmark this Pear & Bubbles cocktail for Mothers Day. Drink up!

    The whole concept of bean boozle-ing just sounds awful. Only one of the two tasting good? No, thank you.

    However, this drink sounds delightful, and I *have* bookmarked it for Mother’s Day. Done and done. Thanks, ladies!

    How far in advance can you make the pear mixture? Will it keep for a day or two or is it best made immediately before serving the drink?
