A Pear cocktail full of fresh flavors, perfect for a summer day or a fall sip. Make this tasty and bright cocktail soon!
I think most people associate pears just with fall and winter. This is likely because a lot of pears are associated with winter flavors. But, pears are actually an all year round fruit. So, with that inspiration in mind, we wanted to make this pear cocktail that would work all year long!
Also, something about the heaping of crushed ice in this cocktail makes for a great summer sipper. This Pear Crisp Cocktail has a dash of vanilla liqueur, green chartreuse, and interesting bitters to round it out!

Pear Simple Syrup
As a first step, you need to make an easy pear simple syrup that will bring so much flavor to this pear cocktail!
We started off with pear vodka to add to that pear syrup, so it was all kinds of peary! To this we added Licor 43, which is a Spanish liqueur, and has the flavors of citrus and vanilla. There is even a little cocoa and finishes with a rum like warmth.
This brought the “crisp” aspect to the cocktail that we wanted, but we also wanted the spices. So, we added in some green chartreuse, which is herbal and rich. This gave some winter spices, but yet some earthiness that the drink needed.
Then we added lemon juice, which gives the pear flavor a tart bite. It’s a nice contrast to the green chartreuse and Licor 43 that both sweeten and adds a pear crisp flavor to the drink.
You have heard us say it before, but Bitters are the salt and pepper of the cocktail world. In this pear cocktail we used 2 different bitters to add even more flavors to the drink.
The first one we used was the typical Angostura bitters that we are sure you have heard of. Its rich and adds slight bitterness to any cocktail.
From there we still felt it needed some “dessert” flavor in the drink. So, we used Molasses bitters that gave a richness and a bit of sweetness that finished the drink really nicely. We hope you try this Pear Crisp cocktail any time of the year, it’s a great flavor and an all year round sipper!
