Snow Day Dinner: Sweet Pear Fizz

Snow Day Dinner

I’ve been thinking about this for some time.

Remember when I made poached pears?  Well, I reduced the pot liquor (not to be confused with alcoholic liquor) and then froze it to use later.  So I had all this pear syrup that I thought would go great in a beverage.

Plus we have this Golden Pear liqueur that we’re nearing the end of and we’d like to finish it up as we’ve had it kicking around for several years now.

So when Fussellette came to dinner, I thought I would try a wee experiment in mixed drinks, and this is what I came up with.

In a jug, mix the following:

1 ounce vodka

3 ounces Golden Pear liqueur

1 cup pear liquor (syrup from poached pears: pear juice, sugar, water, lemon, vanilla), frozen to slush.

2 cans club soda, chilled.

Stir and pour into glasses.  Serves four.

The next time you stew or poach fruit, save the juice or the sauce and see what kinds of liqueurs can make it into the best drink ever!
