Spiced Peartini

I am not above liberating great ideas from the other Doristas.

Inspired by Trevor’s suggestion to use the poaching liquid from the spice poached pears in a drink, I present to you

The Spiced Peartini.

2 shots of homemade pear “vodka”

1/2 shot, more or less, of spiced pear poaching reduction

1 dash bitters

Pour ingredients over ice in drink shaker, shake, strain into glass. Add slice of spiced poached pear as garnish. Cocktail is on the sweet side, if you prefer you may serve over ice with several splashes of club soda.

Pear vodka can be made by pouring a bottle of vodka, and 1/2 cup of simple syrup (regular or sugar-free) over 4-6 pears placed in a glass jar with a tight fitting lid. Allow to steep for 3 months. Lasts indefinitely. Tastes fantastic after two years.

    Made the second one a bit “drier” with a little less spiced poaching reduction. Tastes like a Pearhattan.
