Fall is the season for pears, and from cocktails to salads, we’re dishing on all the best ways to enjoy every last drop of the sweet bounty.
Shred 1 medium Bosc pear; place pulp on several layers of cheesecloth. Gather edges of cheesecloth together; squeeze over a glass measuring cup to yield 1/3 cup juice. Discard solids. Combine pear juice, 2 tablespoons citrus-infused vodka, 1 tablespoon pomegranate juice, 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice, and 1 tablespoon agave syrup (or sugar syrup) in a martini shaker with ice; shake. Strain about 3 tablespoons vodka mixture into each of 2 martini glasses. Top each serving with 1½ tablespoons hard apple cider or cidre doux. Garnish with pear slices. Yield: 2 servings.
