Pear & Ginger Margarita

Try this refreshing take on a margarita that has both the sweet and tangy flavors of pear and ginger. This is my favorite kind of margarita and it will soon be yours too! 

The pear is fragrant and the ginger keeps it from being overly sweet. The ginger beer gives it the sparkle and fizz that makes this drink extra special. But you could also use ginger ale if you can’t find ginger beer. 

I recommend that you make extra pear and ginger simple syrup to have on hand. You can make a pear and ginger soda by adding the syrup to some club soda, or use it in yogurt or over vanilla ice cream, it's delish! The combination of flavors makes it the perfect cocktail for fall. Who says margaritas are just for summertime sipping?

  • For the Simple Syrup:
  • 1 cup of sugar, plus 1 tablespoon
  • 1 cups of chopped pear (We ordered ours fresh from Harry & David)
  • 2 tablespoons of chopped ginger
  • 1 cup of water
  • Pinch of kosher salt

  • For the Cocktail:
  • 1 1/2 ounces of tequila
  • 1 ounce of fresh lime juice
  • 2 ounces of ginger beer
  • 1/2 ounces of pear and ginger simple syrup
  • Ice

For the Simple Syrup:

Slice the pear and ginger. Place 1 tablespoon of sugar in a pot of pear and ginger and cook on medium low heat for 5 minutes.

Add 1 cup of water, 1 cup of sugar and salt and bring to a boil. Remove from heat and let cool for 30 minutes.

Strain the liquid and remove fruit and ginger. Let the liquid cool.



For the Cocktail:

Add tequila, simple syrup, ginger beer and lime juice to large glass with ice and stir well.
