Writer at the Bar: The Oregon Spring Break
I don't get spring breaks anymore, but I made this drink in honor of the kind we have in Oregon. This drink is crisp, refreshing, and good for watching the slush come down outside.
The Oregon Spring Break
2 ounces of Absolut Pear Vodka
2 ounces of Pear Juice
1/2 ounce of simple syrup (more or less depending on your sweet tooth)
Lime or berry carbonated soda water (like Talking Rain -- the flavor's up to you)
Add all ingredients except the soda water into a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake until icy cold. Pour into stemless wine glass. Top off with soda water. Garnish with small apple slice, and enjoy!
