Here's a fantastic, refreshing cocktail for the holiday season (or anytime!) with a local Seattle twist from Rob and Donna Dughi, who are featured Honorees for our Season One.
Inspired by the fresh fruits of the fall season and wanting to create something that would stand out at our Foodie Empire party, Rob and Donna found the Pear Haymaker recipe here in Saveur, that derives from Philadelphia restaurant Talula's Garden. But being in Seattle, they wanted to add their own special touches. So they integrated local Batch 206 Vodka and Rachel's Ginger Beer (which really made the cocktail stand out) and used pear juice vs. using a muddler. The end product was brilliant!
Season One of Foodie Empire featuring the Dughi's along with our other Honorees is currently in production. Please stay tuned for updates!
