Share a Drink? - Pear Rum Blush

Overloaded by the sweet and sickly? In need of a break from the rich and heavy? So what’s a girl to drink post-Thanksgiving? This week’s cocktail is fresh and fizzy and festive. The Pear Rum Blush was created by Maggie Battista of Eat Boutique, a magazine and market that celebrates the best small batch foods by boutique food makers. For this concoction she collaborated with Snippet and Ink, a beautiful blog devoted to daily wedding inspiration.

“Part rum punch and part sparkling cocktail, this Pear Rum Blush is refreshing and festive. The flavor is fruity with a kick, reminiscent of those amazing sherbet punches of our youth that took center stage at every holiday gathering.” A perfect accompaniment to your holiday decorating!
