Pears…no, not PAIRS (get your dirty, threesome mind out of the gutter) not twins, not groups of two… the fruit! PEARS are the under-rated fruit of the season.
Pears are more than just the apple’s sweeter, tree-dwelling cousin. Pears bring all kinds of health benefits too. More than just for canning or baking into pies, pears make delicious nectar that can be creatively used to make lip-smacking cocktails.
Either fresh from the tree or fresh from your local farmer’s market, pears are the new cocktail ingredient changing the game of artisan cocktails. Like the Ginger Pear Bourbon Cocktail: a delicious and sweet cocktail for any season.
Next time you’re feeling parched, climb a tree, grab a pear, the lemon, honey, and bourbon, for the ever-exquisite Ginger Pear Bourbon Cocktail.
- 2 oz bourbon
- 2 oz pear nectar
- ½ oz fresh squeezed lemon juice
- 1 oz ginger honey simple syrup
Shake bourbon, pear nectar, lemon juice, and simple syrup in a cocktail shaker with ice. Strain into a highball glass filled with fresh ice. Top with ginger ale. Garnish with a pear slice.
