Pear cocktail with bourbon

Spiced Pear Blitz

  • Author: Lila Ruth
  • Total Time: 15 min
  • Yield: 1 cocktail 1x
  • Diet: Gluten Free


  • 1 bosc pear (not too small)
  • 2 ounces bourbon
  • 1 fresh lemon wedge
  • 2 tablespoons honey simple syrup (see instructions below)
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 1/4 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 56 ice cubes


  1. Go ahead and make your honey simple syrup–it’s 1:1 with water. You can just heat a tablespoon of water together with a tablespoon of honey, stirring until honey is fully liquified and blended. I make a larger batch: 1/4 cup honey + 1/4 cup water and refrigerate the rest for iced tea and other cocktails.
  2. Peel and core your pear, cut into large cubes. No snacking, you’ll need it all for the drink 😉
  3. Pour your bourbon into a small blender ( we used a Ninja). Squeeze your lemon wedge over top and pour in the 2 tablespoons of honey simple syrup and water. Add in cut pear, pumpkin pie spice and pulse then blend until smooth.
  4. Pour through a strainer a little at a time into your shaker. Use a spoon to go back and forth over the strainer to move it through 75%. You can discard the rest. Add 5-6 ice cubes to your shaker and shake for 10 seconds.
  5. Pour drink into a small martini glass and garnish with a slice of pear or cinnamon stick. Sometimes you’ll need to shake the shaker a bit to make sure you get every last drop into the glass.
  6. Enjoy!
