Pear Crisp Cocktail

Mrs. Nom made pear crisp this evening, so we set out to find a dessert cocktail that would be a nice match to the sweet treat.   We came up with the pear crisp cocktail, with paired nicely with the pear crisp.  Sweet enough to pair up with the dessert, but with a hint of herbal freshness from the Chartreuse to cut the sweetness.
