Alpensahne

The drink of choice for winter sports enthusiasts at Austrian ski resorts, Alpensahne is a combination of local cream and brandy as well as pureed alpine mountain pears, which lend a light sweetness. The cream is the centerpiece though, and comes only from cows in Austria's Ennstal Valley. Because of its rich, creamy flavor, Lauria Alpensahne can be sipped alone but is often a companion to an espresso or alongside dessert. [$35 for 750ml; lauria.at]
