I love a recipe that doubles as a homemade gift idea. This bubbly Pear Ginger cocktail from Project Sip includes a delicious flavored simple syrup that you can easily jar and give to friends as a DIY holiday gift. This holiday drink is the fourth installment in a series they’ve shared with us that includes Apple Thyme, Peach Margarita and a Raspberry Gin cocktail recipes. I like a little something bubbly this time of year so this festive cocktail might need to go on my list for a New Year’s Eve celebration. Thanks so much to Jen Gietzen and Kathryn McCrary for sharing this with us! xo, grace

PEARS GINGER CINNAMON, OH MY!

For simple syrup:
-1 cup of water
-1 cup of sugar
-1 pear (peeled and cored)
-3 pieces of ginger (broken off from ginger root, peeled with vegetable peeler)
-1 cinnamon stick

Boil all of the ingredients together until sugar has melted, about 5 minutes. Cool and put in container in fridge. Will keep for up to 2 weeks. (This makes a great gift on its own!)

To make the drink:

1. Add a double shot of pear, ginger & cinnamon simple syrup to a glass.

2. Fill the remainder of the glass with champagne.

3. Top with frozen cranberries if you’re feeling festive!
