How to Make the La Perla Cocktail

Mix up a sherry and pear liqueur for a perfect summer cocktail

Summer cocktails are undeniably some of our favorite mixes in the office, and's resident tequila expert (and advisory board member) Jacques Bezuidenhout brings us this new one — La Perla.

In the following video, Bezuidenhout shows how to whip up the La Perla, using tequila, sherry, and pear liqueur. The mixture is stirred, not shaken, and strained into a chilled cocktail glass, making it an easy cocktail to make at home. Garnished with a lemon twist, this tequila cocktail makes a perfect aperitif, or even during-dinner drink, a light, gorgeously presented drink to up the sophistication.

Here are the ingredients you will need;
1.5 ounces Partida Reposado Tequila
1.5 ounces Domecq Manzanilla Sherry
.75 ounces Mathilde Pear Liqueur
Garnish: Lemon twist
Glass: Cocktail
