VANILLA + PEAR MARGS
THESE ARE SO GOOD!! A very sweet take on margaritas. And I had legit forgot about pears until now. So I’m pretty happy they are back in my life thanks to this yummy cocktail recipe!
2 oz silver tequila
4 oz pear juice
1 oz lemon juice
Tiny squeeze of vanilla extract
Little bit of honey
Dash of cinnamon
Rim your glasses with cinnamon. You can do this simply by putting lemon juice on the rim and dipping it in cinnamon on a plate.
Combine all ingredients in a cocktail shaker + shake well + pour over ice.
Garnish with sliced pears & boom, yummy Monday night margs!
If you can’t find pear juice at the store buy canned pears & use the juice. I’d say roughly each can had 6 oz of pear juice in it. Then you also have extra pears to eat!
The original recipe called for vanilla bean which was pricey at the store so I went with vanilla extract because I already had it in my pantry. YOU ONLY NEED THE SMALLEST AMOUNT OF EXTRACT, a tiny bit goes a long way.
We also tried it as a blended marg & it was not our fave. It had the consistency of applesauce which was a bit weird for a marg.
Don’t drop the tequila bottle in your parking garage like I did. No fun having to drive back to the store & re-purchase the tequila. WHOOPS.
These are pretty dang easy & delicious! Enjoy your vanilla + pear margaritas & happy holidays friends!!
