The Peartini is a simple and fun cocktail that combines the flavor of pear with a little spice. The spiced syrup uses the usual wintertime spices of clove, cinnamon, allspice, nutmeg, vanilla, and orange and uses brown sugar for the sweetener, making this a great drink to enjoy around the holidays. If you like, use an unflavored simple syrup and enjoy the drink year round.

There are a number of great pear vodkas available now. Grey Goose is a favorite, and Hangar One's Spiced Pear is particularly nice in this cocktail. You can also infuse your own vodka when the fruit is in season.
