Pear-Rum-Blush-3

As I endeavor to suck as much celebration from February as humanly possible, I present you with a favorite cocktail that I crafted for my monthly column collaboration on Snippet & Ink with Heidi Murphy. We ransacked my family room to take these shots, shoving my old barn table against a chocolate-colored wall to set off the rosy hues.

Part rum punch and part sparkling cocktail, this Pear Rum Blush is refreshing and festive. The flavor is fruity with a kick, reminiscent of those amazing sherbet punches of our youth that took center stage at every holiday gathering. Omit the booze and add club soda for a fruity non-alcoholic soda. Enjoy!
