A Delicious Seasonal Cocktail

Ginger and pear—a quintessential fall flavor combo—make this drink sweet and slightly spicy. A touch of elderflower liqueur (St. Germaine) adds the perfect floral undertone. Feel free to add more or less simple syrup depending on how sweet you like your cocktails. Just be sure to make enough—this martini will go quickly!

Enjoy this delicious seasonal cocktail at your next party. I promise it will take the edge off the holidays!
