Vanilla Pear Gin Fizz

This Pear Vanilla Gin Fizz is still one of my absolute favorite recipes.

A homemade pear and vanilla simple syrup combined with gin and soda water make this easy cocktail perfectly sweet, gorgeous, and refreshing!

Pear Vanilla Syrup:
(makes enough or 4 cocktails)
1 cup finely chopped/blended pears (bartlett pears work best)
½ cup organic sugar
½ cup water
¼ cup vanilla syrup

To Make 1 Cocktail:

2 oz Gin (about 3 1/2 Tbsp or 60 ml)
3 Tbsp pear purée syrup
¾ cup soda water
Crushed ice to top


1. Start by finely chopping or blending your pears. Then add the pears, sugar, water, and vanilla syrup to a small saucepan and place over medium heat.

2. Bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce to a simmer and cook about 5-7 minutes until the liquid becomes an amber color and the pears are breaking down. Stir frequently while the pears are cooking to evenly cook.

3. Remove the pear puree from the heat and strain the syrup into a container.Use a spoon to press any remaining liquid out of the pear solids. Discard the pear solids and use only the strained syrup for the cocktail recipe. Let the syrup cool to room temperature before using.

4. To make a cocktail add 1.5 oz of gin and 2 tbsp of pear vanilla syrup to an 8 oz glass and whisk together. Next, add ¾ cup soda water to the glass. To finish, add ice to top and stir. 

Note: A great addition to this delicious drink is a rim of sugar and vanilla bean around the glass.
