More About This Recipe
  • Move over pumpkin spice, there’s a new drink in town.

    Autumn weather calls for soups, stews, casseroles and hearty celebrations. All of these rich and heavy foods need a refreshing drink to complement them. I have the perfect solution, using my favorite fruit of the season—pears.

    My Pear Tree Punch is one of my favorite go-to drink recipes. Sparkling and light, it bubbles with fresh pears and juice. It’s such a nice break from the traditional “apples and cinnamon” or “pumpkin spice” craze. A pear-flavored drink is a pleasant surprise—I constantly have people saying, “I would never have thought to use pears in a drink, but it’s just perfect!”

    This drink is super easy to make, taking just minutes and a few ingredients. Really, it’s incredibly simple, so pretty—and everyone will be impressed.

    To make it, gather some pear juice, ginger ale, lemon, fresh pear and a little sugar. (Or a lot depending on how big your sweet tooth is!)

    Pour about 2 cups of pear juice in a bowl. If you’re having trouble finding pear juice, check the organic section of your local grocery store.

    Now squeeze in the juice of a lemon.

    Here’s where you decide how much sugar you want. We prefer a sweet punch so I added 1/2 cup sugar. (My son wanted more but I thought it was perfect.)

    Add a 2-liter bottle of ginger ale and stir.

    Top with a freshly sliced pear. Super pretty and so refreshing, this will soon become your favorite fall drink!
