I have sorta been on a roll with my days this week, Tasty Tuesday, Wordless Wednesday, therefore I might as well continue on and do Thirsty Thursday. This warm pear cider looks amazing to me. Use your normal mug to serve them, or carve out the inside of pears like they did in the original post.
Warm Pear Cider
3 ½ cups pear nectar
1-2 sticks of cinnamon
3 whole cloves
4 whole anise stars
¾ cup tequila gold
4 Asian pears (optional)
Combine pear nectar, cinnamon sticks, cloves, and anise stars in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer for 10-15 minutes.
Add tequila and stir to incorporate.
To make the pear cups:
Cut off the pear top and with a sharp knife carefully outline a rim on your pear cup.
With a melon baller or a spoon, hollow out the pear making sure to leave about 1/4 inch at the bottom and around the edges, creating a cup.
Pour warm nectar into pear cups and enjoy.
