- 1.5 ounces Roca Patron Añejo tequila
- 3 ounces pear nectar
- 1/4 teaspoon caramel
- 2 drops vanilla paste
- Caramel for rim
Gently heat the pear nectar in a pan, then stir in the caramel and the vanilla paste to dissolve. Place the mixture in the refrigerator to chill. In a mixing glass, stir Roca Patron Añejo with ice. Strain into a shaker with no ice. Stir the chilled pear nectar into the tequila and serve in a chilled caramel-rimmed martini glass.
To rim the glass
Use a knife to spread creamy caramel over a plate; then gently roll the outside rim of a martini glass around the plate. Place glass in freezer to chill.
*This cocktail can also be enjoyed hot. Should you want to drink it hot, add the tequila during the first step and enjoy right off the stove.
