This cocktail is made with pear nectar which I feel lends a more natural tasting cocktail then those made with apple pucker or pear liqueur. I muddle fresh mint from my backyard herbs.
- Muddle the mint, juice from 3 lime wedges and sugar.
- Add 2 Oz of Rum
- Add the pear nectar
- Add 8 ice cubes
- Shake vigorously
- Strain into the glass full of crushed ice
- Top the drink with club soda
- Add sprig of fresh mint, lime wedge and pear slices.
This was a really tasty cocktail to sip on. I think the key is taking it easy with Step #7, which states to top it off with Club Soda...do so sparingly, as it can easily get watered down with too much extra Club Soda. I used asian pear slices with lime wedges for the garnish. Thanks for sharing your cocktail recipes, carmenskitchen. Made for 2009 Fall Pick-A-Chef.
