The leaves are turning and there’s a special feeling in the air anticipating the cozy nights and brisk days ahead. Here’s a delicious colorful cocktail to celebrate the changing of the seasons- going from summer to autumn feels like a major shift.
It seems like the perfect time to ditch the summer fruits and embrace the delicious flavors of fall. At Painting with a Twist, we love trying new colorful cocktails that embody every time of year. What’s the best way to welcome the changing leaves? A toast to the good life with an Autumn Pear Spritzer.
- Crushed Ice
- 1 tsp organic honey
- ½ cup prosecco
- Slice of fresh pear
- Sprigg of Thai basil
- Fill a highball glass with crushed ice.
- Drizzle 1 tsp honey into ice and stir vigorously with a spoon to distribute evenly.
- Fill with ½ cup of prosecco.
- Push sliced pear into the drink along the side of the glass.
- Slap basil between palms to release flavor.
Additionally, this recipe is simple enough to pack up and bring to your next paint and sip class or perfect for sipping on the patio at dusk.
While this palette satisfying colorful cocktail is our own brainchild, we couldn’t help but take inspiration from the Lemon Tree Dwelling’s recipe for the Pear Prosecco Spritzer. Is basil not your thing? Maybe you have a heart for amaretto? If so, here’s a perfect recipe that is similar. Maybe even give them both a try to see what you like most. Cheers!!
