7 Tasty Fruit Cocktails

7. Gingered Pear Cocktail

This is the ideal end of summer recipe. Pears are now out across the nation and ginger is the ideal pairing. First off, you’ll need to make the pear ginger puree. Garnish your beautiful concoction with candied ginger or a simple slice of pear. If the puree still seems thick, feel free to add a bit more water.

Gingered Pear Cocktail
3 oz. pear infused vodka
1/2 oz. pear ginger puree (recipe to follow)
1 thin slice pear

1. Mix all liquid ingredients with ice in a cocktail shaker. Strain into a medium glass with ice and add ingredients. Garnish with a slice of pear.

For the puree:

2 pears, peeled and cored
1-inch of ginger
1/8 cup water
1 tsp raw sugar

1. Add ingredients to blender, adding water to liquefy. Add sugar and blend until smooth.

Serves 1
