Spiced Pear Gin Fizz


This is a great gin for drinking straight in a martini, if that’s your style, but I found that it works well with some sweetness from the simple syrup and a bit of tang from the lemon. You can absolutely use another gin if you have a favorite. Every type of gin will bring unique properties to this great fall cocktail.

The Spiced Pear Gin Fizz starts with a simple syrup infused with pear, star anise, and cardamom pods. This ‘infusion’ is much less complicated than it sounds: Simmer water, sugar, pear, star anise, and cardamom in a pan for about 5 minutes. Cool and strain.


Spiced Pear Gin Fizz

– 1 1/2 oz. gin
– 1 Tbsp. simple syrup (1:1)
– 1/2 oz. fresh lemon juice
– 1/2 oz. fresh lime juice
– 1 fresh egg white (pasteurized if you like)
– 1 oz. heavy cream
– 3 drops orange flower water
– 1 oz. club soda, chilled

– Tools: shaker, strainer
– Glass: highball


Combine the first 7 ingredients in a shaker without ice and shake vigorously to combine. Add ice to the shaker and shake again for at least a couple of minutes (more if you have it in you). Strain into a glass, top with club soda and stir.
