Pear Prosecco Cocktail

Pears are one of my all-time favorite fruits. I actually enjoy pears more than I like apples.

When we lived in Florida, we were able to get all these delicious fruits year-round and I was never deprived of my pears. Well, now that we're in snowy Michigan I can, obviously, only get fruits and veggies when they're in season. Which is a little disappointing.

So when I was doing my weekly shopping and noticed that there were pears in the produce section, I got super excited and probably bought way too many of them. But meh… they'll get eaten or used in recipes. Like this pear prosecco cocktail.

Since pear itself is such a subtle flavor, I decided to would be best utilized as either a puree or simple syrup. You get more of the pear flavor that way and that's exactly what I did. Then mixed it with my favorite prosecco and added a little kick of vodka. Delish!

This pear cocktail will definitely be making another debut at Christmas! The simple syrup makes a lot, enough for you to make a whole slew of cocktails which is perfect for large gatherings or parties.

Or if you're not having people over then it keeps in the fridge for about a week for you to make all the pear cocktails you want!
