The winter months shine with pomegranates, figs, and other seasonal produce. Add the sweet and tart taste of pomegranate along with its beautiful red hue to a fresh pomegranate brandy sour with cognac, pear brandy, lemon, and bitters.
Combine cognac, pomegranate juice, pear brandy, lemon juice and bitters in a shaking tin. Add ice and shake until the outside of the tin is frosty. Strain into a coupe and top with a couple spritzes of absinthe, garnish and sit back and watch the fire.
