Pear-Cilantro Margarita

I managed to get a massive sunburn this weekend from hiking the coastal trail in Marin and running around the city in some serious sunshine. While I was out-and-about, I was not too surprised to notice that every patio, bar and restaurant was packed. What is it about nice weather that makes everyone want a cocktail? Next time the weather permits, try this fun spin on a marg.

Pear-Cilantro Margarita


  1. Ice
  2. 1 ounce reposado tequila
  3. 1 ounce pear nectar or juice
  4. 1/2 ounce Simple Syrup
  5. 1/2 ounce fresh lime juice
  6. 1 1/2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
  7. 1/2 teaspoon chopped cilantro, plus 1 small cilantro sprig for garnish


  1. Fill a cocktail shaker with ice. Add all of the ingredients except the cilantro sprig and shake well. Pour into a chilled margarita glass and garnish with the cilantro sprig.
