{friday cocktail: gingered pear}

While I am not a big vodka drinker, I do love the spot on pear taste of Grey Goose La Poire.  We picked some up a few weeks ago and it has been great as an ingredient for champagne cocktails, but I was looking for somewhere to use it.  I came across this recipe and thought I could modify it perfectly to suit my tastes.  If you are curious about that huge ice cube in that glass pictured, it is made using this mold which I highly recommend, especially for all you Old Fashioned drinkers.



  1. does the hendrick's go into the cocktail somehow? i missed that step!

  2. Hi Abbie- Hendricks is the type of Gin I prefer to use, but in the recipe I usually just write "gin" without specifying a brand since Hendricks can be on the pricey side. I also like to use New Amsterdam Gin or Bombay.
