As a bartender, I am always on the lookout for new and exciting ingredients to incorporate into my cocktail recipes. One of my current favorites is pear puree.
This versatile ingredient can add a subtle sweetness and depth of flavor to any cocktail, making it a must-have for any bartender’s arsenal.
Pear puree is made by blending fresh, ripe pears until smooth. It can be used in a variety of cocktail recipes, from fruity and refreshing to bold and complex.
One of the best things about pear puree is that it pairs well with a wide range of spirits, including vodka, gin, whiskey, and rum.
Not only is pear puree delicious, but it also has several health benefits. Pears are a good source of fiber, vitamin C, and antioxidants, making them a great addition to any diet.
When used in cocktails, pear puree can add a natural sweetness that allows for less added sugar, making it a healthier option than many other cocktail mixers.
