The Super Sleigh was brought out for the 2010 Winter Olympics and is a refreshing cocktail for watching the games. It may seem like nothing special - a liqueur, some lime, and soda - but it is that liqueur that makes the difference. Xante is a delicious pear-flavored Cognac-based liqueur, that is best thought of as the Grand Marnier of pear liqueurs. In this seemingly simple drink its flavor profile is gently accented with lemon and lime and with the effervescent touch of soda, everything comes together wonderfully.
