Rhubarb Sidecar

[Photographs: Autumn Giles]

This fruit-forward take on the classic Sidecar uses pear brandy, orange liqueur, and rhubarb shrub. I used Williams Pear Brandy from Clear Creek Distillery. It's a bit of a splurge, but completely worth it.

Note: To make simple syrup, combine 1 cup water with 1 cup sugar in a small saucepan and heat over medium heat, stirring constantly, until sugar is dissolved. Cool before using. Simple syrup will keep in a sealed container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
