Spiced Pear Bourbon Cocktail


1 1/2 ounces bourbon
1 1/2 ounces pear purée (recipe below)
1/4 ounce ginger liqueur
1/4 ounce agave nectar
1/2 ounce freshly squeezed lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon allspice dram
Soda water to taste
2-3 dashes Hella Bitters Aromatic Bitters (from the Craft Your Own Bitters Kit)
Freshly cut thyme or sage sprigs for garnish


  • In a mixing tin or cocktail shaker, add the bourbon, pear purée, ginger liqueur, agave nectar, lemon juice, and allspice dram. 
  • Fill with ice, shake well, and strain into a cocktail glass, filled with fresh ice.
  • Add soda to taste and give 2-3 shakes of Hella Bitters Aromatic Bitters.
  • Gently smack the fresh herbs to release their aromatics and place them in the finished cocktail. 
  • For the pear purée:
  • Peel, core, and coarsely chop 3 pears. Purée the chopped pears and 2 ounces of lemon juice in a blender until smooth. 
  • Strain and press the pear mixture through a fine-mesh strainer or chinois, discarding the remaining solids.
  • This mixture yields enough to make 4-5 cocktails.
