Summer of George

Master mixologist Jeremy Oertel is the brains behind the Summer of George, a brilliant tequila + pear cocktail that we just can’t stop sipping. It’s sweet and tart, and well-rounded thanks the two types of tequilas.

Oertel calls for St. George’s spiced pear liqueur, which includes cinnamon and clove flavors. It will still be quite tasty with a simpler variety of pear liqueur, but the spices are just beautiful alongside the honey and orgeat.
