cinnamon + pear cocktail

December 23rd, 2011

I’m ready to do a happy dance, how about you? With New Years right around the corner, I’ve got a few tasty cocktails lined up to share with you. This week we’ll sip a little rum paired with pear cider (which could easily be switched out for apple cider), a little cinnamon syrup and splash of fresh orange juice. It’s juicy and boozy and spicy, but best of all it’s delicious and festive, especially with a lovely cinnamon sugar rim.
