Cheers | Running with Scissors.


For several months, now, my sister and I have been trying out cocktails when we get together for our regular Wednesday evening knitting. It was my turn to host this week and I wanted to use Spiced Pear Liqueur (because finally fall). The helpful folks at St. George Spirits have compiled a bunch of recipes and I decided to riff the Running through Orchards.

It was delicious, so I'm sharing my version with y'all. I thought about calling it "Everything but the Kitchen Sink" because the list of ingredients uses about half the bottles in my liquor cabinet, but Running with Scissors seems much more fun!

Running with Scissors
(inspired by St. George Spirits)

1 oz Botanicals Gin
1/2 oz St. George Spiced Pear Liqueur
1/2 oz elderflower liqueur
1/8 oz Cointreau
1/2 oz fresh lemon juice
1/2 oz fresh orange juice
a dash of Angostura Bitters

Shake all ingredients well with ice, then strain into a martini glass. Enjoy!
we tried it with the grated cinnamon that the original recipe suggests, but agreed it wasn't necessary
Looking back through my Cheers archive, I realized I also have all the ingredients for the Fall Classic. You might, too! Happy Saturday!

I'm not a gin fan but I do like the sound of spiced pear liqueur!

I swore I wasn't going to buy any more liquor until I used up some of the bottles on my liquor shelf, but surely I can make an exception and purchase some spiced pear liqueur. It will help me use up the large bottle of St. Germain that I haven't known what to do with!

I would try your cocktail, but when it comes right down to it I'd rather just a whiskey. Neat, please. Cheers!
