Spiced Pear Collins

Pears are a juicy fall fruit that not only give baked goods autumnal flavor, but they are also perfect when “peared” with gin. Wow your customers by mixing up this ambitious, gin-based fall cocktail that has a woody sweetness, robust density, and a sour effervescence. 

Ingredients (serves 1):

For cocktail:

- 1 1⁄2 oz. gin

- 1 1⁄2 oz. pear purée (recipe below)

- 3⁄4 oz. rosemary-clove simple syrup (recipe below)

- 3⁄4 oz. lemon juice

- Sparkling water to top

- 1 sprig rosemary to garnish

For pear purée and rosemary-clove simple syrup (makes enough purée and syrup for 5 cocktails)

- 2 pears, such as Bosch or Bartlett, peeled and pitted

- 1 1⁄2 oz. lemon juice

- 1 1⁄2 tsp. fresh rosemary

- 1⁄2 cup sugar

- 1⁄2 cup water

- 1 oz. whole cloves

- 3 sprigs rosemary

Instructions:

For pear purée: Slice pears and combine with lemon juice and rosemary in a blender. Blend until smooth. Gently strain mixture through a fine-mesh sieve and discard any solids. You will have roughly 1 cup of purée.

Tip: If not using right away, pear purée can be frozen in an ice cube tray and then stored in an airtight container in the freezer to be used for individual cocktails in the future.

For simple syrup: Combine sugar, water, cloves, and rosemary in a saucepan over low heat. When it reaches a boil, remove from heat and let sit for 30 minutes. Strain into a jar and store in the refrigerator until use.

For the cocktail: Combine pear purée, simple syrup, lemon juice, and gin in a cocktail shaker over ice. Shake vigorously until chilled. Pour into a High Ball or Rocks glass and top with a small splash of sparkling water. Garnish with rosemary to serve.
