Pear Mojitos

Mmmm…pears. One of my favorite winter fruits. In our quest to make mojitos out of, well, everything, we tried making a mojito with pears. I couldn’t imagine what the combination of pears and mint would taste like, but, well, it’s tasty! You could make your own pear nectar by putting some soft pears in a food processor and then straining them, but we took the easy route and purchased pear nectar. Enjoy!
