This is something that sounds exotic, but if you live anywhere near an IKEA you can obtain delicious lingonberry extract for about $5. I bet you could find it online or at a local grocery store too, if you look. Or substitute in whatever berry you enjoy instead. Apple, raspberry, pumpkin, cherry, blueberry…
I recommend something red, because the red juice and pear layered is very festive. This would be adorable at a holiday party or get-together.
- 1/2 oz lingonberry extract
- 1/2 oz rum
- 2 tbsp pear juice
- Small piece of pear
Step 1: Pour in the juice concentrate. This should be the heaviest, so if you pour the other layers carefully they shouldn’t mix.
Step 2: Splash in 2 tbsp pear juice. I opened a can of pears and used the juice in there, plus the fruit as garnish.
Step 3: Carefully pour on the rum, cut a slit in the pear and wedge it onto the glass.
And there you have it! Totally adorable lingonberry-pear shooters. You could also make this into a full-out beverage by using 1-2 cups sparkling flavored water and adding rum, berry, and pear juice.
