The Story Behind The Johnnie Walker Perfect Pear

In this seasonal highball, Johnnie Walker Black Label and pear nectar are combined into a refreshing elixir that highlights pear’s natural affinity for the smoky notes in Scotch whisky. A splash of lemon juice and cinnamon syrup adds a layer of complexity with hints of citrus and spice. Served on the rocks in a Collins glass, this spirited cocktail is topped with club soda and garnished with a poached pear and cinnamon stick.
