So what do I do with that bottle of pear saki that someone gave me....should I drink it warm? Put it in a dessert maybe? I know little about saki and could use some expert input.

Which one is that, Lyra? Momokawa Moonstone Asian Pear, the domestic one in the blue bottle? If so, I think it would be most palatable as a mixer, honestly. In and of itself it's a little cloying and doesn't taste much like sake. Shaken up with a little vodka and umeshu (plum wine), lychee juice, or yuzu wine, though, I'm sure it could be quite tasty. That's the only pear flavored sake I've come across, but let me know if yours is something different.
