This is a wonderful cocktail for the holidays! Simply delicious and easy to make. This recipe was shared with me by a great friend that loves to mix cocktails and is always searching out new and delightful drinks. This one is a winner!
This cocktail is made with muddled fresh grapes and sage mixed with pear vodka and ginger ale. My friend blends a very scrumptious ginger ale along with a sugar-free ginger ale. This cuts down a bit on the sugar, and I loved the taste. Mixing the two ginger ales is not necessary at all – you can easily just stick with the regular ginger ale or go with a sugar free version.
Either way this Pear and Ginger Smash is a cocktail worth savoring!
