While everyone else is freaking out about apple season, I’d like to give pears props for a second. These soft, nutritious fruits have such a pleasant, comforting flavor. Like apples, there are many types of pears in the produce aisle. Asian pears are crisp and firm like apples, but have the luscious, mild taste of a pear. Slightly sweet with a hint of sourness. I really don’t eat them enough when they’re in season, but I really should try harder.
This Asian Pear Mule is tart but succulent, fruity but delicate. It’s a lot like a Moscow Mule, only with less citrus and more pear. I’ve seen Asian pears at local grocery stores lately, but if you can’t find one, you may substitute any kind of pear! The spicy ginger beer in the Asian Pear Mule will warm you right up. This cocktail would be a huge hit at your next ladies’ night or dinner party this fall. // susannah
