Cocktail Friday – Whatta Great Pear

With the cooler months being all about apples, pears and delicious spices the team put our heads together to whip up this pear inspired number to warm the cockles of your heart.

Using fresh pear as a garnish is a must for this Winter warmer, but we also love the combination of bourbon and maple syrup for a little Winter richness.


  • 30ml bourbon
  • 5ml maple syrup
  • 5ml lemon juice
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 30 ml ginger beer
  • 30ml pear nectar
  • Pinch of allspice
  • Fresh pear
  • Ice


In a cocktail shaker, combine bourbon, maple syrup, lemon juice, vanilla extract, pear nectar and allspice.

Muddle ingredients together to blend the flavours and make sure that rich Winter flavour is combined.

Pour into a short glass over ice. Top with ginger beer and stir.

Garnish with fresh pear.
