Spiced Pear Cocktail

20141123-IMG_7366Is it just me or do cocktails just sound better around the holidays? OK they sound fantastic all year round, but there’s something extra fun coming up with concoctions with all the festive ingredients this time of year has to offer. I love a flavorful, fragrant mix of spices with apple or oranges any day of the week but this time I wanted to try pear for something a little different. The base of this cocktail is so simple – it’s really just pear juice and vodka (how fun is this Absolut Warhol bottle?) but adding cinnamon, nutmeg, a little lemon, and ginger really brings it to a whole new level without requiring anything fancy other than a great holiday dress. This would be perfect thing to sip on tomorrow while the turkey cooks, but it will also be a great go-to for the rest of the season.
