Fall Fave: Vanilla Pear Cocktail

It's Friday! Hope you have some fun and festive plans for the weekend! We're continuing birthday festivities and aptly soaking up time with a dear friend who flew in from Seattle yesterday as a surprise. It's going to be a fabulous few days! As we head into the weekend, I can't resist sharing my signature birthday cocktail that I found on Two Tarts. In case you're on the hunt for some seasonal libations, this Vanilla Pear Cocktail is one you must try!


12 oz (1.5 cups) pear juice

6 oz vodka

1/2 vanilla bean, seeds scraped

vanilla sugar, for rim

1 cup ice, plus more to serve over

Mix pear juice and vodka in a pitcher or shaker. Split open the vanilla bean, and scrape the seeds into the juice and vodka. Add 1 cup ice, then give it a good shake. Pour into cocktail glasses over more ice and serve with sugared rim. {this recipe makes 4 drinks}
