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 are my favorite cocktail. I love them so, so much and am always searching for ways to switch them up. This drink is strong but it doesn't taste super strong thanks to the honey, which is both amazing and dangerous.
WHY THIS PEAR MARGARITA IS THE BEST
- You only need 4-5 ingredients. I don't know about you, but generally speaking, the fewer the ingredients, the more likely I am to actually make a recipe
- It's subtly sweet thanks to the honey
- It's a fantastic change of pace from the typical margarita recipe
HONEY PEAR MARGARITA RECIPE
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 out and order a fancy cocktail and there’s always some sort of ingredient on your drink and you’re left wondering how the flavors possibly go together? Yeah, that’s the rosemary.
*The trick is letting the ingredients sit in the refrigerator for at least an hour, which will really allow the flavors to come into play.
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!

So you're only putting 2oz of tequilla in 32oz of juice?
Just checking that the recipe is correct.
You can add however much you want -- I changed it to add a bit more.
Diana Sutherland says
What did you rim the glasses with?
Thanks for this recipe. I made it with fresh pears blended with a little lemon juice for fresh juice. I added a bit more honey (pears were not completely ripe) it was excellent!
Woohoo--thanks for the comment and I'm glad you liked it!
Hi! This recipe looks amazing! What tequila did you use?
I used Espolon, but any tequila will work.

MMM yes! My friend just gave me a whole bag of pears from his pear tree and I was wondering what to do with them all! Perfect! 🙂
Ummm my favorite thing about blogging is that it's how I met you! And literally I also wouldn't have friends in SF without blogging either haha. xoxo
XOXO I say we should cheers to blogging with this marg ehhhh?!
These look amazing!!!! Will have to try...a perfect transition from a summery margarita to a fall version! Blogging is a recent venture to me, but nonetheless an exciting one that I'm passionate about. MY favorite part about blogging so far is being able to connect with so many like-minded people. I also love being able to have a new creative outlet to share what I am passionate about with others who care. I hope my love for it continues as my blog grows! Thank you!
Agreed, blogging is wonderful for those reasons, and this marg IS perfect for fall 😀

Yes cheers to margs, and that place sounds deeeeeelicious.
Allie @ Miss Allie's Kitchen says
I'm in LOVE with this! I am a marg girl from time to time but I love a twist, especially one that doesn't involve freaky, preservative laden mixers!
Hhaha! Nope nope this is pretty simple, and it's sweet without being artificially sweet.

I also LOVE cinnamon. I'm usually not a margarita drinker but this sounds amazing. I'm new to blogging, but I love that it makes me think more creatively and outside the box. I also love to write and it's fun to have a space where I can write whatever I want. Have a great weekend!
Yes I completely agree with everything you said!
