For those of you that might indulge every once in a while, here is a great refreshing drink.

The pear is what makes this a more or less Finnish version of the drink.

You can make the drink virgin by using ginger ale or ginger beer mixed with a little Bitter Lemon or Sprite if you like. If so, you can cut down or eliminate the simple syrup.

Pear Mojito

* 1 1/2 parts white rum
* 1 part fresh squeezed lime juice
* 2 parts freshly extracted pear nectar
* 1 part simple syrup
* 4 sprigs mint
* seltzer

Add rum, simple syrup, lime juice, pear nectar and 3 sprigs mint to shaker and muddle until desired mint flavor is achieved. Strain into footed glass filled with ice. Top with seltzer. Garnish with sprig of mint and slice of pear.
