Place the chopped pear in the bottom of a muddling or mixing glass; use the muddler to press out all the juices. Strain and divide the pear juice into two lowball glasses filled with ice. Divide the remaining ingredients into the two glasses and stir each well. Garnish with the zest of a clementine, a slice of pear and cinnamon sticks.
Growing up in a small town in the foothills of North Carolina and attending the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, I always dreamed of living on the coast. After earning my degree in Marketing/Branding I moved to Wilmington and the life my spouse and I have created for ourselves is a blessing beyond words. Together, we enjoy kayaking the Cape Fear, fishing the shores of Carolina Beach and picking up seashells and shark’s teeth. At home, I love to cook and write recipes, play with our dogs, and take on DIY home improvement endeavors. Being a part of the Carolina Marketing Company team has shown me that you really can enjoy your job. I am truly grateful to have a career I love in the city I aspired to be in. Life is grand!
