Spiced Pear & Elderflower Collins

By Stacey Swenson featured in How to Spritz French Fluently
Built on the classic collins structure, this long drink takes its inspiration from warming flavors of the season. Floral pear juice and St-Germain are layered over a base of cognac, lightened up with citrus, and evened out with spiced honey syrup.
