Y’all know I love to share my favorite recipes with you all! This one is no exception! The perfect drink for early fall. I love this recipe from dandilicious blog! It’s lite,crisp and a perfect sipper for an early fall drink or cocktail- a must share with you all!

Pear and Ginger Shrub
3 ripe pears chopped
1 cup water
½ cup honey
2 tablespoons grated ginger
½ cup unfiltered apple cider vinegar
3 thyme sprigs optional

Pear and Ginger Cocktail
2 ounces pear ginger shrub
2 ounce of vodka
Juice of half of a lemon
Splash of honey
2 inch piece of ginger skin removed and cut into chunks
bottle of prosecco or champagne
Pear slices for garnish

In a medium sauce pan, combine pears, honey, and water. Bring to a soft boil. Lower to medium-low heat and allow to simmer for 25 minutes. The pears will release their juices and soften. Remove from heat.
Add in grated ginger. Cover pan and allow to sit for another 10-15 minutes so flavors can continue to meld together.
Strain mixture with a sieve to discard pair pieces (pressing pairs into the sieve to extract their remaining juices).
Add mixture back to pan along with apple cider vinegar and bring to low boil and simmer for 2-3 minutes. Remove from heat.
Pour mixture into air tight container and store in fridge for up to 2 weeks.

In a shaker, combine all of the ingredient, except champagne. Muddle the ginger for about a minute so it releases its flavor. Add ice and shake vigorously.
Divide the mixture between 2 glasses. Top with champagne until glass is 3/4s of the way full. Garnish with pair slice.
Serve, sip, and enjoy!

Until next time,
