YOU’RE MAKING THE
SPICED PEAR COCKTAIL
LET’S PREPARE FOR YOUR
VIRTUAL MIXOLOGIST EXPERIENCE
Welcome! We’re so excited to host you! Please prepare for your “Fruits of Labor” Spiced Pear Cocktail Experience by following the steps below. If you have any questions along the way, just ask!
PLEASE REFRIGERATE YOUR CITRUS! YOU’RE THE ZEST!
Step 1. PREPARE YOUR TOOLS
- Cocktail Shaker: Or you can use a wide mouth jar or water bottle with a sealed lid
- Measurement Tools: A jigger, shot glass, or tablespoon (2 tbsps = 1 oz)
- Knife & Cutting Board: To cut your citrus
- Glassware: We recommend a Double Old Fashioned Glass for this cocktail, but feel free to use your favorite glassware
- Citrus Juicer: Optional
- Hawthorne Strainer: Optional
Boxes shipped to Alabama, Arkansas, Michigan, North Carolina, Ohio, Tennessee, & Utah do not include alcohol. We recommend bringing tequila for your cocktail or use your spirit of choice.
Step 2. PREPARE YOUR INGREDIENTS
FOR GUESTS RECEIVING INGREDIENT DELIVERY IN ADVANCE, YOUR BOX will be arriving from Cocktail Courier via Fedex. You must sign for your package and you may be asked for an ID to verify you’re over 21.
IN ADDITION TO THE INGREDIENTS IN YOUR box, PLEASE PREPARE THESE INGREDIENTS:
- Ice: At least 4 cups
- Egg White: Highly recommended! We’ll use it for a fun cocktail variation
FOR GUESTS PROVIDING THEIR OWN INGREDIENTS, HERE IS THE FULL INGREDIENT LIST:
- 2 oz tequila*
- 0.75 oz lemon juice
- 0.5 oz cinnamon syrup (recipe below)
- 0.5 oz pear puree (recipe below)
- Garnish: dehydrated lime wheel, ground cinnamon
*Soda water replaces the spirit in non-alcoholic boxes
2 cinnamon sticks
1 cup sugar
1 cup water
Bring the water to a boil in a small saucepan. Add sugar and stir until it has dissolved completely. Reduce the heat, add the cinnamon sticks and cover the pan. Simmer for 10-15 minutes. Remove the pan from the heat. Allow it to cool and steep for at least 1 hour.
2 cups pear chunks, seeds removed
Put pear chunks in a blender and mash with a wooden spoon to release some of the juice. Puree until smooth. You will have about 1 1/4 cups.
Step 3. PREPARE YOUR PLATFORM
Please ENsure you have the correct VIDeO platform, SUCH AS ZOOM, downloaded for your event.
For a more interactive event, we encourage all guests to turn their video on during the experience.
YOU’RE ALL SET!
THE DAY BEFORE YOUR EXPERIENCE WE’LL SEND THE EVENT LINK TO YOUR INBOX. In the meantime, CHECK OUT OUR VIRTUAL ETIQUETTE TIPs or bar games.
(Yeah, we’d choose the bar games too.)
Prepare your space – Make sure you have a strong internet connection with little background noise if possible
Mute yourself when not speaking – This will eliminate background noise (like cocktail shaking!) that makes it difficult for others to hear the speaker.
Be sure to come prepared – Come with ingredients and supplies ready! Set yourself up in the kitchen where you have ample counter space and access to a sink.
Please come 10 minutes early – This way we can get to know each other and start right on time!
Amplify your experience with these extracurricular activities!
