Liqueur de Poire is a French pear liqueur that is easy to make and makes a wonderful gift. The hardest part is waiting three months for the maceration process. Be sure to shake the jar periodically when you check on its progress.


  1. Place pear and spices in a jar large enough to hold all of the vodka. Seal and place in a sunny window for one month.
  2. After the one month period, add sugar and reseal.
  3. Place jar in a location that receives sunlight for at least part of the day, for 3 months. Periodically shake the jar when you check on its progress.
  4. Strain into a pretty bottle and cork. You can add the used cinnamon stick & nutmeg to the bottle for decoration.
