Eau de vie is a clear fruit lightly flavored brandy. The name Eau de vie translates to "water of life". The beverage has been popular for hundreds of years in Europe and interest has been steadily gaining in the US as well. Mostly it is served as an after-dinner aperitif but it is also used as an ingredient in several cocktails including The French Foam, Asian Pear Martini, and the California Widow.
