perfect pear

January 21st, 2011

This little number is one of the cocktails I created for the Supper Club, which we had last weekend. This drink takes a bit of preparation (I promise it’s worth it) and works splendidly if you’re looking for a special drink for a dinner party. Roasted pear, ginger and rosemary spice and rye… you know it’s going to be a good one!

Cheers! To a lovely, snowy weekend!

perfect pear
makes 1 cocktail

1 oz roasted pear purée
1/2 oz rosemary and ginger syrup
1 1/2 rye, like Rittenhouse Rye
dash of bitters
rosemary sprig, for garnish

In cocktail shaker, combine 2 cubes of ice with the pear purée, syrup, rye and bitters.
Shake well for about 10 seconds.
Strain into a lowball glass and garnish with a sprig of rosemary.


roasted pear purée
5 pears, peeled and cut in half

Roast the pears, flat side down for about half an hour, or until they start to get juicy and soft.
Let cool, remove any remaining seeds and run through a food processor.
Add 1/4 cup and up to 1/2 cup water to purée until it’s thinned out enough that it pours well.


ginger and rosemary syrup
makes about 1 1/2 cups

1 cup water
1 cup sugar
2-inch piece of ginger, peeled and finely chopped
2 sprigs of rosemary

Stir water and sugar until disolved over medium heat.
Add ginger and rosemary and simmer for about 30 minutes.
Remove from heat, strain out the ginger and rosemary. Store in the refrigerator.

    This drink is perfection and needs to be made immediately. Considering that winter winds have me craving the warming aroma and flavor of ginger, I must add to this my sip list. Time to find my rosemary underneath the snow… p.s. I’m also now inspired to try to make a cocktail with my earl grey simple syrup. any thoughts on a fruit pairing?

    i don’t often drink earl grey tea, so i’m not super familiar with it’s flavor profile. i did just look it up though and it seems like maybe orange or lemon would work well with it. you know how i love blood oranges… maybe it’s worth a little experimenting! yum!
    let me know how it goes!

    Hey there would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re using? I’m looking to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having a difficult time deciding between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something unique. P.S My apologies for getting off-topic but I had to ask!
