Muddled sage, 100% pear juice, silver tequila, local honey, with a cinnamon rim = your new favorite fall drink!
I combined my two favorite things – fall and margaritas. I wanted to create a new festive cocktail, specifically for Thanksgiving but also for all season. I didn’t want to use apple or pumpkin spice flavors – because I just feel like there’s enough of those drinks already out there! Everything this time of year is apple or pumpkin spice (I’m guilty of it too) – but pear is so underrated! These drinks are refreshing but cozy as the same time. Definitely don’t skip out on the cinnamon rim, it seriously ties everything together so nicely.
I used 100% pear juice – every store should have this.. it was kind of hard to find but it’s there! I got Central Market brand here at HEB!Print
3 shots of tequila
2.5 cups 100% pear juice
1 tbsp honey
6–8 sage leaves
3 thin pear slices (optional)
First make your cinnamon rim by rubbing a little bit of honey on each glass. Add some cinnamon to a plate or cutting board and carefully dip your glasses into the cinnamon so it evenly coats the rim of the glass.
Muddle 1-2 sage leaves in each cup then add a few ice cubes.
In a shaker combine the tequila, pear juice and honey. Shake it up and evenly pour in each glass.
Garnish with a sage leaf in each glass and slice of pear (if you’d like) and enjoy!
