My mother-in-law’s pear tree has been full of beautiful pears this year and she brought some to me a couple of days ago. Looking through Grandmother’s cookbooks, I found this 1940’s recipe for a Pear and Pineapple Cocktail. Since I had all the ingredients on hand, I made it for our dinner Thursday night.
The recipe is so unbelievably, ridiculously easy to make!
Just combine the fruit, add grape juice and cherry juice.
Garnish and enjoy!
Pear and Pineapple Cocktail
20 oz. can pineapple chunks
4 maraschino cherries
white grape juice
Peel the pears and chop in small pieces. In a bowl, combine the pears and pineapple chunks. Divide the fruit evenly between 4 cocktail glasses. Cover the fruit with white grape juice. Add a small amount of maraschino cherry juice to the glasses. Garnish with a cherry. Yields 4 servings.
How easy is that! I think it makes a beautiful presentation.
