Ingredients

  • 1 very ripe pear
  • 3 oz bourbon
  • 1 oz maple syrup
  • 1/2 oz lemon juice
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract or the seeds scraped from 1/3 of a vanilla bean
  • 1/4 tsp allspice
  • ice

Instructions

  • Slice the pear in half. Scoop out any overly squishy pulp along with the seeds and stem. Roughly dice the pear and put it in a medium bowl. Mash the pear with a fork or a potato masher. Transfer the pear to a fine mesh strainer set over a wide mouthed measuring cup or another bowl. Press the pear pulp against the strainer to get as much of the juice out as possible, along with some of the pulp.
  • Once you have the pear juice add the rest of the ingredients, along with some ice, and stir vigorously to mix. Fill two glasses with more ice and divide the drink between them.

Notes

If you have a vanilla bean on hand, you will get a really great vanilla flavor from the seeds. Just split the bean, open it up, and scrape out the seeds with a spoon. Add them to the mix and enjoy.
You can use the shaker here, either by straining the pear juice directly into it or by pouring it in from the bowl.
