Spiced Pear Vodka

recipe from Put ‘em Up

– 2 pears ($2.50/lb @ Santa Monica 3rd St. FM)
– 1 cinnamon stick
– 1 vanilla bean
– ¼ cup sugar
– 2 cups vodka

HOLY MOLY THIS SMELLS GOOD. Vanilla cinnamon pear…It’s pretty hard not to eat this immediately and forget about that silly ol’ vodka.

VANILLA BEAN. $10 for 2 beans? Really?? I know that you can reuse them, but dadgum. This recipe called for the bean to remain intact during the infusion so once it’s done, I think I’ll cut the bean open and try it in Blueberry Vanilla Vodka or Brandied Plums With Cinnamon & Vanilla (depending on the lingering vodkaness).

Spiced Peartini!
