Pear Gin Fizz

Pear Fizz Recipe - Cashmere & Cocktails

What do you do when you’ve bought a bunch of pears and your kids refuse to eat them? Pear Gin Fizz, amigos. While it won’t fix the issue of your kids being fussy eaters, it will provide a both beautiful and tasty drink and that’s almost just as good. I also love gin, and if you’re a fellow gin lover, this cocktail is for you. The sweet pear syrup combined with the pine-tree-like flavour of the alcohol make me more than a little happy (though probably not as happy as I’d be if my kids agreed to eat their fruits and vegetables without a mental breakdown – but small wins people).

Here’s what you’ll need:

For the pear syrup:

  • 1 cup blended pears (any variety – though I used bartlett)
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • ½ cup water
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract

For the cocktail:

  • 2 oz gin
  • 2 oz pear syrup
  • 1 cup carbonated water
  • Iced
  • 1 tsp granulated sugar, for rim
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon, for rim
  • Pear, thinly sliced
  • Sprig of thyme, to garnish

Here’s what you’ll do:

  1. For the pear syrup, chop 1 cup of pears then place in food processor and blend. In a small sauce pan, combine blended pears, sugar, water and vanilla. Over medium heat, bring mixture to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 5 minutes or until liquid becomes amber colour. Remove from heat and strain syrup into a jar. Discard pear solids. Allow syrup to cool completely before use.
  2. For the cocktail, in a shallow bowl, combine sugar and cinnamon. Wet the rim of an 8oz glass with water then dip in cinnamon sugar mixture. Add gin and pear syrup glass and stir. Add 1 slice of pear. Fill glass with ice, add carbonated water and stir. Garnish with thyme if desired.
  3. Enjoy!
