"This is the perfect cocktail for transitioning from winter into spring," says Joel Tennyson, wine director of The Inn at Dos Brisas of his Spiced Pear Cocktail.  "The ginger adds a kick to wake up your palate. Pears are not a fruit you often find in cocktails, but they add the perfect balance of sweetness to play on the acidity and the spice of the ginger."

There’s something magical about bubbles — they always bring a smile to your face and lift your spirit. They’re enchanting even when mixed in cocktails. Take this seasonal pear bellini. A mixture of pure pear juice and Poire William, topped with a lively bubbly, this is a cocktail that’s easy to make, and even easier to drink. Plus it fairly screams holiday party… Cin-cin!

Ripe comice pears are favored in my house, but bosc and anjou pears work just as well.Balance the sweet and salty with honey, salt, and pepper, and serve these as an easy appetizer at a dinner party.Click here to see the Bacon: It's What's for Dinner story.

Pears
Another dish that lends itself well to non-Thanksgiving preparations, this cobbler is terrific with raspberries or blackberries, depending on the season, and with mixtures of berries and apples, berries and pears, or apples and pears. It takes its name from the cobblestone appearance of the dough on top of the fruit. The addition of a spray of diced candied ginger to the fruit before you lay down the pieces of dough will yield a fragrance and fiery excellence that is very close to fancy grade.
