Author Notes: This isn't a frozen blended daiquiri, the kind you drink poolside; it's a classic daiquiri, which is to say, a cocktail whose main ingredients are rum, lime, and sugar. The pear flavor doesn’t hit you over the head: you get the rum first, as you should, but the shrub comes on at the finish - a lingering, faint tang.
To make what is called "rich" simple syrup, combine 2 parts sugar and 1 part water in a small saucepan. Bring to a simmer, and cook, stirring regularly, until the sugar is fully dissolved, about 3 minutes. Remove from the heat, and chill thoroughly before using. —MollyandBrandon
