Pear Margaritas!

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.

4 servings
Cooking time: 35 minutes

About Lynsey

I work with USA Pear marketing offices that work in 38 countries all over the world: from Latin America to the Middle East, from Europe to Southeast Asia and places in between, our representatives serve markets on every continent except Antarctica. I love the opportunity to practice my Spanish and pick up new phrases in other languages (even if it’s just the basics of “hello,” “goodbye,” “thank you” and of course “pear”: pera, birne, гру́ша [GROO-sha], and more to come). I’ll be sharing highlights of the exciting and interesting activities that are taking place to promote USA Pears around the world. My favorite pear variety is Comice. Yum!
