  • 1 star anise
  • 2 whole cloves

Simple Syrup

  • Combine 1/2 cup of turbinado sugar (raw cane sugar) and 1/2 cup water in a small saucepan.  Stir over low heat until sugar dissolves.  Cool. 
  • Spiced Pear Liqueur
  • Place the pear, cinnamon, star anise and cloves in a 2 cup jar.  Add 7 oz of vodka and 3 oz of the cooled simple syrup.  Seal and shake for 30 seconds. 
  • Let it infuse at room temperature for 24 hours.
