Brasserie Lebbe 1.000

Julia Ewan - The Washington Post; Flute From Crate and Barrel

Feb 11, 2009

Eau de vie, generally poured as an after-dinner digestif, is challenging in cocktails. But as used here, it makes a cocktail that would be wonderful served earlier, perhaps even as a replacement for the mimosa at brunch.

Neyah White, of Nopa in San Francisco, named the drink after a Belgian producer of saison farmhouse ales that have pear and yeasty notes, as this cocktail does. It works best with champagne rather than other sparkling wines.
