The Fall of the House of Van Ness
Of course, you can’t go wrong with any Finger Lakes wine to pair with the book, but if you’re looking for a little more fun and flair, sip on this cocktail inspired by the Falling Leaves.
2 ounces dry riesling
1 ounce Poire William (or other pear brandy)
1/2 ounce orange curaçao
1/4 ounce honey syrup
3 dashes Peychaud’s bitters
Star anise for garnish
Add all ingredients into a mixing glass with ice and stir until well-chilled. Strain into a coupe glass and garnish with a star anise pod.
