Notes

I've been working on a hot toddy, using pear for a comforting autumn elixir. I tried various combinations of pear syrups, pear nectar and store bought pear juice. I haven't found a good balance yet for a hot toddy but I did stuble across this as a great seasonal cocktail. The ginger syrup adds a spiceyness that warms the palette, even though this is a very sweet, cold drink.
