Ginger in Pearadise

Adapted from a recipe by David Heid, City Cellar Wine Bar and Grill, West Palm Beach, Florida, USA

“This drink is very refreshing, and has just the right amount of kick with the fresh ginger,” David Heid

60 ml (2 oz) Tequila Avion ReposadoGinger in Pearadise

37.5 ml (1.25 oz) Santa Cruz organic pear nectar (or other high quality pear nectar)

22.5 ml (.75 oz) fresh ginger juice (juiced through juicer, or blended and strained)

30 ml (1 oz) agave nectar

30 ml (1 oz) fresh squeezed lime juice

A few small pieces of candied ginger, as garnish

Shake over ice and strain into an ice-filled old-fashioned glass.  Add the garnish.

gaz sez: Pears and tequila.  A match made in heaven.  Did everyone else know this already?  It seems so darned obvious that I’m amazed I’ve never tasted this duo paired with each other before, but fact is that I was a tequila/pear virgin till you came along, David Heid.  Thank you.
