If there's one thing I appreciate about fall produce, it's pears. Sure, apples are the hero of the fall, but the unsung victor will always be pears. They're perfectly gritty, sweet, and make for really delicious recipes, such as this spiced pear margarita. Making margaritas couldn't be easier once you get the hang of the ingredients, and then adding in your favorite flavors. I love this spiced pear version, especially for Thanksgiving and the holiday season.
A spiced pear margarita incorporates all the typical ingredients to make a margarita, with the addition of a little cinnamon and, of course, pear pureé. This spiced pear margarita tastes just like what Thanksgiving feels like: crisp, warm, comforting, and bound to make you happy. Margaritas are my favorite cocktail, so it's no surprise why I made this spiced pear version. Read on how to make it for your Thanksgiving or Friendsgiving table this year!
I'm not an expert in making pureé, but here's what I found to work really well for this recipe:
Want to muddle the pear? I'm sure this would work fine, adding a little water to the pear and using a muddler, but I find it simpler to add the pear and some water to a blender and let it do its thing. If the pear turns brown, it's totally normal, as it's the oxygen in the atmosphere causing it to brown.
To make this ultra-festive margarita, you'll need a few basic ingredients, and of course, the pear!
The most labor intensive part of this cocktail is making the pureé, after that, it's all a breeze!
Can I use any fruit other than pear?
Yes! Feel free to make this a spiced apple or spiced cranberry margarita!
What if I use mezcal?
Oooh, mezcal. That'll work too, it'll make the cocktail a little smokier than using regular tequila.
Can I serve this over ice, or does it need to be sans ice?
Do what feels good for you! I like the way this one tastes without ice, but feel free to pour over a rocks glass with ice!
