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.

Serves: 1

  • 2 ounces white rum, such as Plantation 3 Stars
  • 1/2 ounce freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 1/2 ounce Pear Shrub (
  • 1 teaspoon rich simple syrup (see note)
  1. Combine all ingredients in a cocktail shaker. Add ice. Shake for 10 seconds, then strain into a coupe.
