We wanted something elegant, with beautiful color and fresh on the palate. We used Cochi (a fortified red wine made from Italian grapes) for the color and taste. We used the June spirit for a touch of sweet and a French twist with a spring feel. And the Pear Eau de vie ... nothing says pear to me like the taste of that spirit -- clear, clean, fresh with an acidic lemon taste. We put it all in a tulip glass, and it can be topped with secco rose if you want for a spritzer. It's fun, old-world elegant and fresh for a party. How to make the Lace Corset 1 1/2 oz. Esprit de June 1 1/2 oz. Cochi rose 3/4 oz. Massenez Pear Eau de Vie 1/2 squeezed lemon Shake, double strain in a champagne flute; garnish with lemon peel.
