Uses for Pear Brandy?

Carb Lover | Nov 12, 2008 04:49 AM

So we have a new BevMo in town, and I was sucked into the vortex of their brandy section. I bought a 375ml bottle of Williams (Bartlett) pear brandy from Clear Creek Distillery. More info here: http://clearcreekdistillery.com/pear....

I'm not really a spirits drinker so my intention is to use it in desserts and perhaps cocktails. I already plan to use it in pear sorbet. One recipe here: http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/279595

Maybe I'll use some in sauteed pears for crepes. Or I'll try galleygirl's famous pear tart w/ a dash of pear brandy in the batter. Pear tart/cake recipe here: http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/298807

It's pear season here and I'm really in the mood. Please pass along any ideas or recipes (especially for exciting cocktails :-))! Oh, and does this stuff last forever once opened? Should I store in the fridge or freezer? Thanks for your help.
