Enjoy the taste of fall with this Honey Pear Margarita. It’s on the sweeter side thanks to the honey and it’s only six ingredients—even non-tequila drinkers will want a sip!
Margarita, anyone? It IS Friday, after all.
Truth be told, margaritas aren’t typically my drink of choice (unless I’m at Mad Mex, then they obviously are). How-e-ver, sometimes ya just need a stronger drink, and this pear margarita is just that. …except that it doesn’t taste strong thanks to the honey. YAY. Also—kind of dangerous.
I don’t say it often enough, but I absolutely love the fact that I get to talk to you guys about food and margaritas every day. Ok, every other day, but you know what I mean. This blog is a creative outlet for me and a way to connect with talented like-minded individuals. It’s how I met my two friends Cassie and Angela, and the thing that’s made me happy for the past THREE YEARS. How has it been three years?! Time really does fly by when you’re having fun.
I got to thinking about this because I recently connected with Isabel of From Cats to Cooking and we discovered that we both love food, photography, Pittsburgh, beer, AND she lives right down the street from me. Like, what? How? The internet world is a weird yet beautiful one.
I’m hoping today we can connect over our love for margaritas or pears or honey or all of the above.
I made this recipe two times because I wanted to see what this recipe would taste like with a hint of rosemary. The result? Subtle but wonderful. You know when you go to the bar and order a fancy cocktail and there’s always some sort of “absurd” ingredient or garnish on your drink and you’re left wondering how the flavors possibly go together? Yeah, that’s the rosemary.
Tip: I opted to add a small amount of cinnamon to the recipe because I love cinnamon and cinnamon goes really well with pear and honey. However, if you want your drink to taste stronger and slightly less sweet, I recommend ditching the cinnamon. Just my opinion!
Whatever your weekend plans are, I hope they now involve this fall-flavored pear margarita!
