Monday Munch: Warm Pear Cider

Dec 27, 2010 1 Comment by TSM Staff

Is it us or have the El Paso temps dropped drastically? Sure, we’re not buried in snow like NYC, but coming from a gang who’s used to 70-degree “winters,” to us, this is COLD! Muy Bueno created a delicious warm pear cider (great alternative to apple) and they even show us how to use  to pears as cute mugs! Enjoy and keep warm!


3 ½ cups pear nectar

1-2 sticks of cinnamon

3 whole cloves

4 whole anise stars

¾ cup tequila gold

4 Asian pears (optional)


Combine pear nectar, cinnamon sticks, cloves, and anise stars in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer for 10-15 minutes.

Add tequila and stir to incorporate.

Cut off the pear top and with a sharp knife carefully outline a rim on your pear cup.

With a melon baller or a spoon, hollow out the pear making sure to leave about 1/4 inch at the bottom and around the edges, creating a cup.

Pour warm nectar into pear cups and enjoy!
