The Spiced Pear Caipirini is a delightful rendition of the Caipirini, which is in itself a neat variation of the Caipirinha.

This cachaça cocktail avoids its predecessors' characteristic lime altogether, opting instead for pear and lemon as the fruits of choice. Add to that the delightful spice mixture of ginger, cinnamon and nutmeg and you have a great drink for any occasion, especially those during the holidays.
