Fireball whiskey

Mason jar

2. Spiked Strawberries & Cream

 

Ingredients

 

Whole strawberries (or pre-cut in half)

Whipped cream flavored vodka

Cool Whip or desired whipped cream

 

Instructions

 

Cut off the leafy tips of strawberries and poke a few holes with a fork.

 

Cut in half or in quarters depending on desired bite size.

3. Spiked Poached Pears

 

Ingredients

 

2 cups to 1 bottle dry red wine

1 navel orange, quartered

1 1/2 cups sugar

2 cinnamon sticks

4 Bartlett or Asian pears, peeled, halved, and cored

Vanilla ice cream

 

Instructions

 

In a 3 to 4-qt. saucepan, combine wine, orange pieces, 1 1/2 cups sugar, cinnamon, cloves, and 2 cups water and bring to boil over high heat.

 

Add pears, reduce heat to a simmer, and add more wine if needed to mostly cover. Cook, covered, until pears are tender when pierced, about 20 minutes. Turn occasionally.

 

You can boil them up to an hour to make sure they’re good and soft. You can even let them sit in the cooled water overnight! Let cool and serve with vanilla ice cream (sprinkled with cinnamon if you fancy).
