Spiced Pear Daiquiri

spiced pear daiquiri

Cocktail consultant Todd Appel likes to incorporate seasonal produce into his recipes—in this case, juicy pears for the Spiced Pear Daiquiri.

1½ oz. rhum agricole
½ oz. spiced simple syrup (see below)
½ oz. fresh lemon juice
1 oz. fresh pear juice (see note)
Tools: shaker
Glass: coupe
Garnish: pear slice, lemon twist or candied lemon peel

Shake all of the ingredients with ice and strain into a chilled glass. Garnish.

Note: Appel uses Comice pears for his pear juice, but any juicy pear will work. If you don’t have a juicer, core and roughly chop soft, ripe pears and purée them in a blender. Pour the purée into a bucket or bowl lined with a double layer of cheesecloth. Gather the cheesecloth and squeeze the liquid out. You can also buy premade pear purée from Perfect Puree.

Spiced Simple Syrup
2 cups sugar
1½ cups water
¼ cup allspice berries
¼ cup cloves
2 cinnamon sticks
3 nutmegs
1 Tbsp. whole black peppercorns
1 tsp. vanilla extract

Combine all of the ingredients except the vanilla in a saucepan over low heat. Bring to a boil and turn off heat. Strain into a clean glass container and add vanilla extract, then shake to combine. Keeps 3 weeks refrigerated.
