Pear-Ginger Shooters

Fresh ginger and fragrant cinnamon infuse this chilled pear soup. Serve it in large shot glasses. Guests may add a splash of vodka if they like.

Serves 12

Prep Time 25 min

Total Time 285 min.

Ingredients

  • 4 ripe Anjou pears, peeled and quartered
  • 1 cup apple cider
  • 1 cup dry white wine
  • 1-2 tablespoon minced fresh ginger, or ginger juice (see Note)
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 4-inch cinnamon stick
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 tablespoon honey

Cooking Directions

Step 1

Stir pears, cider, wine, ginger (or ginger juice) to taste, lemon juice, cinnamon stick and salt in a large saucepan; bring to a simmer over medium-high heat. Cover, reduce heat, and gently simmer until the pears are very tender, about 20 minutes.

Step 2

Discard the cinnamon stick. Pour the soup into a large blender or food processor; add honey. Blend or process until smooth. (Use caution when pureeing hot liquids.) Pour into a large bowl, cover and refrigerate until cold, at least 4 hours. Pour into small glasses to serve.
