Pears have always been one of my absolute favorite fruits. And with over 3,000 known varieties grown around the world and just as many distinct flavors, pears were just begging for me to transform them into a cocktail or two.
My Pear Blossom Fizz combines rich pear, elderflower blossom liqueur, bubbles (of course), and is topped off with an unexpected dash of cinnamon to highlight the natural warmth of pear, while my Spiced Pear Margarita is all about the juxtaposition of the jalepeno’s heat, the tartness of the lime, and the natural sweetness of agave.
So regardless if you like your libation a little on the sweet side or a with a bit more of a kick, pear should be your next go-to cocktailing ingredient. Cheers! Truly, MKR
