Fall Entertaining: Pear Haymaker

Last updated 3 years ago

This cocktail is tart, refreshing, and perfect for sipping on a cool fall evening.

What you need:
  • ¼ cup sliced, peeled ginger
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 4 oz. vodka
  • 1 oz. fresh lemon juice 
  • 1 pear, chopped, peeled, and cored
  • Ginger ale, to top
What you need to do:
  • Make the ginger syrup: Combine sliced ginger, sugar, and 1 cup water in a small saucepan and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Remove from heat and allow to cool to room temperature. Strain out ginger solids and discard, reserving syrup in an airtight container.
  • Divide chopped pear between two 12 oz. tall glasses; muddle in each glass with a wooden muddler. Pour 2 oz. vodka over the pears in each glass, and fill with ice. Add ½ oz. ginger syrup and ½ oz. lemon juice to each glass, stir to combine, and finish with ginger ale to top.
