Pear Vanilla Gin Fizz

Pear Vanilla Gin Fizz

Have you heard the news? It's so easy to make uniquely flavorful simple syrups for cocktails with Raven's Nest jam (we call that a jamtail around here!). With just 1 cup of jam, 1/2 cup of water, and a few minutes on the stove, you'll have yourself a jar of versatile simple syrup that can be used to create this refreshing cocktail (or mocktail!). The creative possibilities are endless!

This recipe features one of our favorites - Cinnamon Pear JamThe fresh pear flavor combined with just the right amount of cinnamon + sweet makes this jam a crowd-pleaser. It pairs beautifully with your favorite cheese (brie, extra sharp white cheddar, or Manchego), sliced pears, and a glass of wine.

Serve up this cocktail while watching the Grammy's, at your next girls night, or a treat yourself to a little pick-me-up at the end of a long day. 

We hope you enjoy it. Cheers!

Pear Vanilla Simple Syrup Ingredients

Combine jam and water in a medium saucepan and heat over medium heat until bubbles just begin to form. Top with sprigs of basil. Stir and cook for about 2 minutes, then remove from heat. Allow mixture to cool for 5-6 minutes, then pour through a fine mesh strainer into an air-tight jar or bottle. Once the mixture is cool, you're ready to start making cocktails!

Store in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.

Pro tip: Have an empty Raven's Nest jam jar? Repurpose your jar to store your simple syrup!
