Pear and Honey Margarita

by James Stevenson

So, are you ready for a margarita on this crazy Monday? Boy, I have had a crazy day and I am not sure who to blame the super moon or my nonstop traveling lifestyle. I have officially been on the road for over a year and this suitcase just seems to get smaller and smaller. If you are like me you may gravitate to classic cocktails at home. You can usually find me mixing and twisting a classic cocktail with seasonal flavors like this Margarita.

Today I am sharing a boozy fall version of one of my favorite cocktails the Margarita! I have added pear and honey to this cocktail instead of the agave syrup that I usually use to balance the flavor profile of my favorite Margarita recipe. I usually make a Margarita with fresh lime juice, tequila, and agave syrup. I was making several bourbon drinks with pear juice and had some left over so I decided to add a bit of flavor to my Margarita recipe. I have also been obsessed with honey in my cocktails so I have added that instead of the agave syrup.

The delicate flavor of the pear mixed with the honey and lime is fall perfection in your glass. As far as the honey goes I have made it into a syrup so it will mix properly with the cocktail and ice. Believe me I have learned the hard way by trying to mix honey straight out of the jar and it has hardened into a ball inside my shaker. This is a pain because you will have to re make the cocktail.
