Halloween decorations have hit stores, the pumpkin spice latte has been gaining buzz, and darn it I think it’s time for Fall! So, what better way to welcome fall than with a Fall spiced pear cocktail that is still very refreshing for these last few warm weeks. This beautiful cocktail combines fresh pear, spices, bourbon, a splash of lemon, and it’s all topped off with a bit of bubbly ginger ale. It is refreshing and not overly sweet, but definitely gets me in the Fall mood.
This simple syrup is an amazingly delightful flavor concoction that I stumbled upon because I stupidly thought Moscow Mules were ginger and mint instead of ginger and lime, oh well, happy accident! This syrup is delicious on its own in a mocktail or cocktail and has a variety of uses.
