USA Pears are sure to be a hit at your Cinco de Mayo fiesta! Our Mexican friends to the south sent us this recipe that will add some authenticity to your celebration.
For under-21 pear lovers, we recommend substituting a lemon-lime soda for the tequila. You don’t have to miss out on the party!
2 Anjou Pears
½ cup Tequila
1 stick Cinnamon
Sugar, to taste
Crushed ice, to taste
Crushed cinnamon, to taste (optional)
Dice the pears. Put water in a saucepan and cook the pears with the cinnamon stick and the sugar until they are cooked and begin to fall apart. Blend the pears and strain. Put the pear blend back in the blender and add the Tequila, sugar to taste, and ice.
Blend and serve in glasses; sprinkle some cinnamon on top (optional). Garnish with pear slices and cinnamon.
Cooking time: 35 minutes
