Pear and Cranberry Cocktail

by on November 23, 2011 · 0 comments

Right now, we are on I-95 traveling down to meet up with family for the holidays (gotta love our mobile hotspot thingy from Verizon). In the back are some seriously critical parts to our Thanksgiving meal, we considered placing some orange rotating lights on the top of our car so everyone around us understands the situation at hand and maybe a large flag at the back with the saying “Mobile Thanksgiving Transport Unit.” I don’t know, is that too much?

Anyone that knows us, knows that by “critical” we aren’t just talking about the turkey or dessert. We’re talking cocktails, people, cocktails. Now, do you understand why we considered the flag?

Give this cocktail a spin over the holiday and you won’t regret it. Use a high quality pear vodka (we used Grey Goose) for this, the drink is delicate, easy to make and will satisfy so many palates. You can make it strong and martini-like or add a bit more juice for something less intense, both are delish.

Have a Happy Holiday, where ever you are!!
