Pumpkin Pie Bourbon and Pear Cocktail

Ingredients:

For the cocktail:

  • 1 1/2 oz pumpkin pie spiced bourbon
  • 1 1/2 oz pear syrup
  • 1/4 oz lemon juice
  • 2 oz sparkling water

For the pumpkin pie spiced bourbon:

  • 375ml bottle of bourbon
  • 1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice blend

For the pear syrup (makes ~6-8 oz): 

  • 1 cup chopped bartlett pear (~ 1 large pear)
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup water

Directions:

For the pear syrup:

  • Add sugar and water to a small saucepan over medium heat, stir to combine and cook until the sugar dissolves. Remove from heat and let cool to room temperature.
  • Roughly chop the pears and add to the simple syrup.
  • Use a potato masher to mash the pears to a pulp in the syrup.
  • Double strain the pear mixture through a fine mesh strainer lined with a tea cloth. Use your hand to squeeze the cloth to get all the juice out of the pear pulp.

For the pumpkin pie spiced bourbon:

  • Add the pumpkin pie spice blend directly to the bottle of bourbon.
  • Shake to incorporate and store in a cool dark place for 24 hours.
  • Give a shake every couple hours to reincorporate the spices.
  • Remove the spices by double straining through a fine mesh strainer lined with a coffee filter.
  • Funnel the bourbon back into original bottle.

For the cocktail:

  • Add the pumpkin pie spiced bourbon, pear syrup, lemon juice, and sparkling water to an ice-filled old fashioned glass.
  • Give a quick stir to combine.
  • Garnish with a thin slice of pear.
