Preparation

  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. For puree, bring pears, the water, sugar, and orange juice to boiling in a medium saucepan, stirring to dissolve the sugar. Reduce heat. Simmer, covered, for 20 minutes or until the pears are soft. Cool slightly. Transfer the mixture to a blender or food processor. Cover and blend or process for 30 seconds or until smooth. Strain through a fine-mesh sieve into a bowl; discard solids.
  2. For cocktail, combine ¼ cup Pear Puree, the vodka, and Cointreau in a cocktail shaker. Add ice cubes; cover and shake 10 to 15 seconds. Strain the liquid into a martini glass. Add club soda. If desired, serve with cinnamon and an orange twist and/or pear slice.
  • Tip: We do not recommend using a sugar substitute for this recipe.
  • To make ahead: The pear puree (Step 1) can be refrigerated for up to one day.
