Two small servings or one large serving


  1. Slice into the middle of one pear, cutting away a thin disc of the fruit. Soak the disc in a small bowl of lemon juice and set aside.
  2. Dice up the rest of the pears and toss into a food processor or blender with the ginger and 8 oz of cold water. Puree until as smooth as possible.
  3. Strain puree through a fine mesh sieve into a glass measuring cup.
  4. Put a kettle of water on to boil while you complete the next step.
  5. Put the pear juice, two cinnamon sticks, and a pinch of salt into a small saucepan.
  6. Simmer for 5 or 10 minutes then remove from heat and let steep.
  7. Pour boiling water from the kettle into two mugs to preheat them.
  8. After a few minutes, discard the water and drizzle a little honey into each mug.
  9. Cut the lemon-soaked disc of pear in half and toss one half into each mug.
  10. Add 1 oz (or 2) of Bourbon and 4 oz of the hot pear juice to each mug. Top with a little hot water and more lemon juice to taste.
  11. Drink immediately!
