The Peartini is a simple and sweet cocktail that combines the flavor of pear with a little spice. The spiced syrup uses classic wintertime spices like clove, cinnamon, allspice, nutmeg, vanilla, and orange and brown sugar for the sweetener, making this a great drink to enjoy around the holidays. If you like, use an unflavored simple syrup and enjoy the drink year-round.
There are a number of great pear vodkas available now -- Grey Goose La Poire is a favorite for this cocktail. You can also infuse your own vodka when the fruit is in season.
