On the first day of Christmas, my true love gave to me… a Gingered Pear Margarita!

Introducing the Twelve Days of Christmas cocktails!  Each day, for the next twelve days, I will introduce a delightful new holiday cocktail recipe to celebrate the season, incorporating the classic Christmas carol, The Twelve Days of Christmas.  On the first day of Christmas… a frosty Ginger Pear Margarita!  This Ginger Pear Margarita is made with pears, silver tequila, and Gingercello liqueur, festively trimmed with cinnamon-sugar salt for a sweet and spicy cocktail that is perfect for the holidays.

Ginger Pear Margarita

  • 2 oz. Silver Tequila
  • 2 oz. Gingercello liqueur
  • 1 (14.5 oz) Can of Sliced Pears
  • 2 Oz. Pear Juice
  • Juice from 1/2 lemon (About 3 Tbsp)
  • 1 Tbsp. White Sugar
  • 1 tsp. Ground Cinnamon
  • 1 Tbsp. Margarita Salt
  • Fresh Rosemary for garnish
  • Fresh pear slice for garnish

(Per glass)

Open the can of pears; pour the pear juice into a container and place in the fridge.  Place the pear slices in a freezer-safe container and place in the freezer for 4-6 hours, until frozen.  Remove the pears from the freezer and set on the counter for about 15 minutes to thaw slightly.  Place 2-3 slices of the frozen pear in a blender, then add the tequila, Gingercello, pear juice, and lemon juice.  Blend until smooth.  Mix together the sugar, cinnamon, and margarita salt on a plate.  Run a piece of lemon around the rim of a 10 oz glass, then dip the rim of the glass into the cinnamon sugar/salt mixture.  Carefully pour the frozen pear margarita mixture into the glass.  Garnish with a fresh pear slice speared with a rosemary sprig.

Note:  If you prefer your margarita on the rocks, not frozen, use about 4 oz of pear juice instead of the 2 oz of pear juice and two frozen pears.
