1 Bartlett pear, halved and cored with a melon baller
6 ounces of bourbon (I know this seems like a lot but it’s for four people!)
6 ounces of warm water
¼ cup honey
Chop the cored pear into a few slices and toss into a blender. Add the bourbon and puree. In a separate container, mix the warm water with the honey and stir until it fully dissolves. Throw both the bourbon/pear mixture and the warm water/honey mixture into the fridge for at least an hour or all day. The longer it hangs out, the more its flavor develops. When you’re ready to serve, combine the bourbon mixture with the honey mixture, and pour into 4 glasses. Add plenty of ice (she’s a mighty strong cocktail!) and fresh mint leaves. Serves 4.
