Vanilla Bean Sugar Rim

  • 1/2 cup of sugar
  • 1 vanilla bean
  • lemon juice for rim

Instructions

 

 

  1. Start by adding a 1/2 cup of sugar to a small bowl.
  2. Slit 1 vanilla bean open with a knife and scrape out the seeds.
  3. Add the vanilla bean seeds to the sugar and rub it into the sugar with your fingers until completely combined.
  4. Pour vanilla sugar on a small plate and set aside.
  5. Grab another small plate and squirt just enough fresh lemon juice on it to dip the glass rim in – and set aside.
  6. Dip your cocktail glass rim in the lemon juice and then into the sugar mixture. Repeat with the second glass and set aside.
  7. Add your cut pear slices to a high powered blender with 1/2 cup of water ( I used my nutribullet ).
  8. Blend pear and water until it becomes a smooth puree with no chunks.
  9. Pour pear puree into a small saucepan.
  10. Add and stir in vanilla extract, star anise, cinnamon, nutmeg, and Tres Agaves Agave Nectar Sweetener.
  11. Bring to a low boil on medium heat (stir often ).
  12. Reduce heat to low and let simmer for 5 minutes.
  13. Strain pear puree into a bowl and let cool.
  14. Place bowl in refrigerator for one hour until cold ( see recipe notes below for faster option ).
  15. Once chilled, pour pear puree into your cocktail shaker.
  16. Add 2 ounces vanilla vodka ( you can substitute for regular vodka, just add an additional teaspoon of vanilla extract ).
  17. Add 1 tablespoon of fresh squeezed lemon juice.
  18. Shake well and pour into your 10 ounce vanilla bean sugar rimmed glass.
  19. Top off with 4 ounces of Prosecco Sparkling White Wine.
  20. Stir gently and garnish with rosemary, a pear slice, and star anise for a festive touch!
  21. Enjoy!

Notes

  • Make sure that your pear is ripe and soft.
  • You do not have to refrigerate the pear puree. You can serve right away without refrigeration.
  • This drink can be substituted with regular vodka. I would just add another teaspoon of vanilla extract.
