Food Gift Love: Spiced Pear Vodka

Food gifts do not stop after the holidays. This vodka is something you could give me anytime of year: to celebrate the first snow fall, to celebrate when the Polar Vortex finally disappears for good, or to just celebrate our (virtual) friendship – that’s a good reason! -Maggie

I’ve never been a fan of syrupy-sweet-flavored liquors—might have a little something to do with too many root beer schnapps in my youth—but I can say that homemade infused spirits have won my heart a thousand times over. The flavors are so delicately and expertly extracted that one can’t help being impressed. In actuality, however, they are quite simple to make and only require the finest ingredients and a great deal of patience (all of the best things are worth waiting for, after all, right?)

This delicious Homemade Spiced Pear Vodka by Boulder Locavore is a shining example of how wonderful these liquors can be, and has become a fast favorite of mine. Requiring only five ingredients—pears, cinnamon, cloves, fresh ginger, and vodka—the flavorful drink comes together quite quickly. Just keep in mind that it take anywhere from five to 14 days before it’s ready to wow your loved ones. Cheers!
