Cheers | Spiced Pear Collins.

I had a different post planned for today, but my sister-in-law made this cocktail for our gathering this afternoon and I knew it was what I really needed to share. 

Because I’m guessing – like me – y’all have the ingredients in your post-Thanksgiving refrigerators. and you might – like me – be ready for something other than wine. and of course – it’s Friday!
Here’s the link to the recipe; Lydia said she followed it pretty much as written, except she used more pears for the purée.
Once we got home, I realized I only had one pear left, but plenty of applesauce, so I added that to make the cup (plus) of purée. I also used allspice and cloves for the simple syrup (because I had both and really…I’m not sure  when I’ll use whole allspice?!) The simple syrup is still steeping, so I can’t report on my changes, but I’m pretty sure these ingredients can stand a bit of “interpretation”.
Happy Day After – and a huge Thank You, Lydia!

  1. I have all those ingredients, except for the gin and pears 🙂 It does sound quite delicious, so now gin and pears are on my list!

  2. Sounds delicious! Something to do with whole allspice: put in small saucepan with a cinnamon stick, whole cloves and water. Simmer — it will perfume your kitchen, maybe your whole house!

  3. That sounds like a lovely cocktail! I'm ready to get into cocktail mode, rather than wine, as I hear wine exacerbates hot flashes.
