Last Sunday, Lauren Mote was shaking love at the “Farms to Forks 2″ event with Growing Chefs. In preparation — and in tune with the harvest — she was roasting Williams (aka Bartlett) pears.
1.5 oz Victoria Gin
1 oz black cardamom & smoked black pepper syrup
0.75 oz lemon juice
2 dashes Bittered Sling “Peach & Pepper” Bitters
1 oz Parson’s Farm William’s Pear purée (roasted)
Shake all ingredients (except the soda) together, strain into a Collins glass with ice, and top with soda. Swizzle, stick a straw in it, and let your taste buds melt with joy.
