    Pear-Pineapple Jamtini Cocktail

    Yield: Approx. 6 ounces 


    • Pineapple (fresh or canned)
    • 1 oz. pear nectar (found in juice section of grocery store)
    • 1 oz. simple syrup*
    • 2 oz. vodka or rum
    • Quarter-size  slice of fresh ginger  (optional)
    • 1 heaping spoonful Pear Honey (or pear or pineapple jam)
    • Club soda or sparkling water
    • Ice
    • Sprig of any type of mint as garnish (optional)
    • half-pint Mason jar


    1. In a cocktail shaker, muddle a few pieces of pineapple. Add the pear nectar, simple syrup, vodka, ginger (if using), jam and some ice. 

    2. Put the lid onto the shaker and shake. Shake some more! You need to distribute the jam.

    3. Add some ice to a new jam jar and strain in the cocktail. Discard solids from shaker.

    4. Top off with a splash of club soda. 

    5. Garnish with some mint and a piece of pineapple if you wish. 

    6. Serve!

    *Simple syrup is just a boiled solution made of equal parts water and sugar. It needs to be made ahead of time and allowed to cool before using. In a small saucepan, combine at least 1 cup water and 1 cup sugar. Bring to a boil to dissolve the sugar, stirring occasionally. Turn off the heat and let mixture cool completely before making cocktails. Store in fridge and use within 2 weeks.
