Here's a crazy idea - a fall drink that doesn't involve apple cider! Seems silly, but I literally can't find any fall cocktails on Pinterest that don't have apple cider as an ingredient. Don't get me wrong - I love apple cider. Especially with rum! However, I've been drinking that combo for a month straight and I need a break.
Here's a great drink for fall using that other seasonal fruit: Pears!
Pear & Vanilla Vodka Cocktail
6 oz Pear Juice
3 oz Vodka
1/2 Vanilla Bean, seeds scraped
Sugar for rim
1/2 cup Ice, plus more for serving
Pear (for garnish)
In a shaker, combine pear juice, vodka, and vanilla bean seeds with 1/2 cup ice. Shake well.
Pour over ice in glass rimmed with sugar, and garnish with slice of pear.
Wondering where the heck you find pear juice? I found mine down the juice aisle at my beloved Market Basket - you can probably find it in the juice aisle or organic section of your local grocery store too!
