Pear Hot Toddy
Super easy
Fairly cheap

One of my all time favorites: gin and juice. This one gets a little fancy with the whipped cream and caramel sauce, but a great beverage when hosting or warming up on chilly nights. This features the remaining fall-trifecta for low-sallies: Maple, Caramel, and Pear.


Category: Drinks (over 21+)
Seasons December November October


For 1 Person(s)

Pear Caramel Cider

1 tsp maple syrup
10 oz pear juice, homemade
whipped cream for topping
caramel sauce for topping

Pear Hot Toddy Directions

  1. Heat up pear juice on stove top or in microwave. You can also steam it on an espresso machine,  165-185°F.
  2. Add 1 oz gin, whisky, or vodka to bottom (I use Beefeaters gin)
  3. Add pear juice, leaving about 1/2" room at top
  4. Top with whipped cream and caramel drizzle

Recipe notes

I highly encourage you make your own pear juice - check out this video on how I make mine. That way you can peel your own and you know it's low-salicylate. It's possible that you can make some from canned pears made in a sugar syrup (light or heavy syrup) from the store. You can also just buy a few pears and make a little at a time. I do not juice mine, as to concentrate it down, but puree them and then dilute it a little. One serving of my juice should still equal approximately one pear.

Also, when choosing a gin, pick one that isn't too botanically interesting. Some gins add peppercorns, anise, and many herbs to flavor it that are high in salicylates. Beefeaters does use citrus, and Tanqueray is a little milder tasting. Since I only have 1-2 shots in a sitting, the little bit of citrus doesn't bother me.
