I usually don’t try out recipes before an event, yes I know I live on the edge, but when it is a delicious cocktail, well reserch is important. I was trying to think of a festive drink for Thanksgiving, I’ve done cranberries and pumpkin in the past so I was thinking of something new and different. Apples? hmm too boring how about pears? So I came up with a spiced pear sangria. It’s very yummy and I am glad I practiced first.
Spiced Pear Sangria
2 pears sliced
1/2 apple sliced
3/4 c pear nectar (found by the fruit juices in the supermarket)
1/4 c ginger liquor
1/8 t nutmeg
1/4 t cinnamon
2 c ice
3 c champagne, prosecco or sparkling wine.
Add all ingredients to a pitcher and stir.
Garnish with cinnamon sticks and or sliced pears.
