Liqueur De Poire (Pear Liqueur)
From: Shopper

Liqueur de Poire is a French pear liqueur that is easy to make and makes a wonderful gift. The hardest part is waiting three months for the maceration process. Be sure to shake the jar periodically when you check on its progress.

1 Bottle

  • 1 ripe pear
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 1 piece orange rind, pith removed
  • 1/2 whole nutmeg
  • 1 pint eau de vie or vodka
  • 6 ounces sugar

Place pear and spices in a jar large enough to hold all of the vodka. Seal and place in a sunny window for one month.

After the one month period, add sugar and reseal.

Place jar in a location that receives sunlight for at least part of the day, for 3 months. Periodically shake the jar when you check on its progress.

Strain into a pretty bottle and cork. You can add the used cinnamon stick & nutmeg

to the bottle for decoration.
