Fall cocktail recipe for spiced pear gin fizz to mix in S'well stainless steel bottle

While we enjoyed the summer months and had our fair share of sun, backyard barbecues and bright, citrusy libations, we’re ready to take it all indoors for fall. The cool months are perfect for warm gatherings with friends and family and signature spiced cocktails.

Adorn your mantle piece with a decked out cocktail cart: a bar tray complete with a variety of liquors, appropriate mixing tools, glassware, and a S’well, filled with a mixer, at the ready. Keep it monochromatic with a shiny metallic tray and silver accessories, and let the array of bottles be the centerpiece. Guests can help themselves to the drink of the evening or create their own concoction. However you style it, your evening is sure to be full of sips, snaps, stories, and smiles.

Looking for inspiration for a signature cocktail to serve? Read below for a recipe for Spiced Pear Gin Fizz, a drink we can’t wait to try at our next soirée.
