Spiced Pear Bellini

Five Ingredient Spiced Pear Bellini

One of the things I love most about food is the powerful memories that it can evoke. This recipe is so dear to me, I hope you have a chance to make and enjoy it this season! You can use any inexpensive sparkling wine in this recipe that you like, just make sure that it is dry, not sweet. You can prepare the pear mixture a few days in advance and store it in the fridge. Garnish each drink with a thin slice of pear, if you're feeling extra fancy.
