It may not feel like Autumn yet here in Southern California, but I did spot pumpkins in the grocery store this morning, and if I turn on the air conditioning, close the blinds and create a little something out of pears, apples or spices then it just might … for a little while at least.
Who wants to come and join me for an Autumn Spiced Pear Cocktail?
This recipe makes 4 cocktails.
- 3 pears – ripe and softer, not firm, peeled and diced
- 1/4 cup Sweet'N Low
- 1/4 cup water
- Smirnoff Cinna-Sugar Twist – 2 oz per drink
- 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
- pinch of nutmeg
- pinch of allspice
- crushed ice
Make a simple syrup using the water and Sweet'N Low. Bring them to a simmer and stir until the Sweet'N Low is completely dissolved, it will take just a few minutes. Remove from the heat and pour into a glass bottle or jar and set aside to cool for about 15 minutes.
Add 2 oz of the Smirnoff Cinna-Sugar Twist to a cocktail shaker, top with 2 oz of the pureed pear mixture. Add ice until the shaker is about 2/3 full. Shake to combine. Pour into a glass. Top with a little nutmeg or cinnamon if desired and add a slice of pear.
Did you know Sweet'N Low is low calorie and diabetic friendly?
