NO. 33 GIN
SPICED PEAR WHITE NEGRON
This winter negroni leaves the floral, summery flavours of a traditional negroni behind in favour of warm spice and luscious fruit. The spiced pear syrup gives this drink a silky texture that is perfect to slip into by the fireside.
Combine in a cocktail shaker:
- 1 ½ oz Laneway No.33 Gin
- ½ oz Lillet Blanc
- 1 oz Spiced Pear Simple Syrup*
Combine all ingredients over a large ice cube in a lowball or double old-fashioned glass, giving it a gentle stir before serving.
*Spiced Pear Simple Syrup
- 4-5 cored and chopped pears (unpeeled)
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 cup water
- ½ cinnamon stick
- ½ tsp vanilla extract
This is a versatile and easy to make syrup that we’ve used in a few of our seasonal cocktails where it brings a warm spice and silky texture. Add water and sugar to a medium-sized saucepan and bring to a boil, stirring until the sugar dissolves. Add the pears and cinnamon stick, then simmer for 15-20 minutes, occasionally stirring gently to prevent sticking. Strain into a covered glass jar, being careful not to press the cooked pears (to avoid giving your syrup a cloudy texture). Add vanilla extract to the mix and store in the fridge.
