Ingredients

1 lb Pears
3 c Vodka, rum, or brandy
1 c Sugar Syrup
2 pinch Cinnamon, nutmeg
2 Clove
2 Coriander seed
2 Apple (opt)


The Bartlett pear is the best to use for liqueur making. It is juicy, sweet, and smooth. Season is July to Nov. Avoid ones with damage.



Slice pears (and apple if desired) and add to other ingredients., adding sugar syrup last. Stir gently and steep 3 weeks. Strain and filter. Taste and adjust flavor by adding more fruit or sugar syrup if needed. Steep 3-4 weeks, then strain. Ready for use.
