Dillons Distillery Spiced Pear Fizz Cocktail

October 11, 2019

Just in time for Thanksgiving I have the most perfect cocktail to share at your family gathering this weekend (I know I will be!). I was recently sent the new Dillons Distillery Craft Cocktails book and I was absolutely thrilled that they sent along a few of the ingredients to make the Spiced Pear Fizz. I promptly asked them if I could publish the recipe from their book on the blog and when they agreed I got to work making this beautiful looking libation. I’ve been eating more pears than ever this fall as Edwin loves them, so I already had all of the ingredients in my kitchen, yay! This drink may look intimidating but the recipe is broken down into a few easy steps and putting it together is very simple. The result is a delicious mix of fruity, sour, warm and spicy…everything I want in a fall cocktail! Cheers!
