Did you know that you can keep a cold away with a Pear Tarte Tatini?  It’s true!  The pear nectar in this drink gives it a rich taste, just like the dessert.  And combining vitamin C-rich pears with cinnamon – a spice shown to inhibit the growth of viruses – helps ensure you stay sniffle-free.


What you need:

  1. 1.5 oz. pear vodka.
  2. 1/2 oz. cinnamon schnapps or cinnamon whiskey.
  3. 2 ½ oz. pear nectar.
  4. 1 quarter wedge of lemon.
  5. Grated cinnamon or nutmeg.


  1. Start by combining vodka, schnapps and pear nectar in a cocktail shaker.
  2. Add a squeeze of fresh lemon juice; shake well.
  3. Strain into a cocktail glass and garnish with a dash of cinnamon or nutmeg, if desired.
