  • Yield: 1 drink 1x

Ingredients

Scale

Cocktail: 

  • 2 oz pear and apple infused vodka (recipe below)
  • 3 oz pear juice 
  • 1 oz pomegranate juice
  • 1/2 oz maple syrup or honey
  • 1/2 oz fresh lemon juice
  • Ginger beer
  • Ice

Apple and Pear Infused Vodka:

  • 1 qt. vodka
  • 1 apple, peeled and sliced
  • 1 pear, peeled and sliced
  • 2 cinnamon sticks
  • 1 vanilla bean, split open lengthwise
  • Optional: 1-2 star anise seeds

Instructions

Cocktail:

  1. Add all ingredients except ginger beer to a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake vigorously for about 10-15 seconds, then pour into a cocktail glass with a large ice cube and top off with ginger beer. 
  2. Optional: garnish with fresh apple and pear slices and a cinnamon stick. 

Infused Vodka:

  1. Add all ingredients to a quart-sized (or larger glass jar). Pour vodka over top, stir and seal jar. Let sit on a cool, dark countertop for 3-4 days. After this time, remove cinnamon and vanilla bean, then seal again and infuse for another 3-4 days. 
  2. Strain vodka through a fine mesh sieve or cheesecloth multiple times to remove as much apple/pear residue as possible. Then, return to a clean glass jar, seal, and store in the refrigerator. 

Notes

If you don't have time/don't want to make the homemade infused vodka, feel free to substitute with a store-bought alternative.
