Pear Vanilla Cocktail


It’s Friday night and we need a cocktail! Time to shake up your weekend with this week’s Paracombe Premium Perry Pear Vanilla Cocktail – delicious made with our Bosc pears!


Total time: 5 minutes Pear Vanilla Cocktail



  • 1 ounce of vanilla vodka
  • 1 ounce of pear vodka (or pear juice for a slightly sweeter cocktail)
  • Club soda (to fill glass)
  • ½ small Bosc pear
  • Sanding sugar (for garnish)
  • Fresh nutmeg
  • Shaved ice 

(NB: 1 ounce equals approx. two tablespoons)



  1. Process ice into a shaved-ice texture using a mixer/food processor.
  2. Use a pear slice to moisten glass rim and pour sanding sugar and freshly grated nutmeg onto a plate. Press the moistened rim into the sugar to coat it.
  3. Add the shaved ice to the glass. Pour vodkas (and/or pear juice) and club soda to fill.
  4. Slice Bosc pear rounds and position in glass and stir.
  5. Enjoy!
