Happy Friday! Earlier in the week I received the sweetest email from a reader saying that she was looking for a signature drink for her upcoming autumn nuptials and came across P&P and was excited when she found the apple cider sangria recipe and was going to make it her signature drink. Have to admit that I was grinning from ear to ear. It's wonderful to hear that you're little tiny corner in the internet is helping someone. Cheers to the weekend!
Fresh Pear Cocktail
1 medium Bosc pear
2 tablespoons citrus-infused vodka
1 tablespoon pomegranate juice
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
1 tablespoon agave syrup (or sugar syrup)
3 tablespoons hard apple cider
Pear slices, shredded pear (optional)
sparkling water (optional)
Shred pear; place shredded pear pulp on several layers of cheesecloth. Gather edges of cheesecloth together, and squeeze over a glass measuring cup to yield 1/3 cup fresh pear juice. Discard solids. Combine pear juice, vodka, pomegranate juice, lime juice, and agave syrup in a cocktail shaker with ice; shake. Strain about 3 tablespoons of the vodka mixture into each of glass. Add cider and top with sparkling water. Garnish with pear slices, if desired.
