Asian Pear Mojito & Crispy Snacks (+ GIVEAWAY!)

The leaves have changed from green to beautiful shades of red and yellow, and are now falling here in Nashville. Fall is in full swing, and I’m sharing how I like to celebrate my favorite season with a double whammy — snacks AND drinks! The way I see it, if you are going to have great snacks, you should definitely spend a minute to mix up a perfect drink to tag along. I’m mixing up a delicious Asian Pear Mojito (cocktail + mocktail option). — (Keep reading to enter to win a big gift basket, too!)

Read through to the end to find out how to win a prize package full
of home and bar goodies, along with some Pagoda Snacks bites!

It should be no surprise that I absolutely love crispy snacks and sides. It should also be of no revelation that there are times when I want something super simple, for myself or for when I am making bites for friends. When Pagoda Snacks reached out recently to ask me to help develop a mocktail to pair with their egg rolls for a Nashville event, I jumped on the opportunity. It’s basically everything that I love all wrapped in one bright red food truck.

The CMA Awards are one of the most popular Downtown Nashville events. Tons and tons of locals and tourists alike all browse the iconic Broadway strip for the entire week to experience some of the best talent in the south. Pagoda wanted to be right in the middle of the fun, so they set up a food truck packed to the roof with egg rolls and passed them out for people to try. Every good snack has to have a great drink, so I took one of my absolute favorite fall ingredients, Asian pears, and made a twist on the classic mint mojito to serve alongside.

Pagoda not only makes egg rolls (Chicken, Vegetable, Pork), but also Potstickers (Chicken and Pork), Wontons (hellloooooooo, Korean Style BBQ Beef!) and more. You can find all of the delicious options in the freezer section of your grocery. If you want to pinpoint exactly what outlets have them, check out the locator here. — Honestly, y’all. These are all just great. The chicken egg rolls featured in the photos are 100% white meat chicken, no MSG, no preservatives, made-from-scratch wrappers. They are one of America’s (and my own) most popular egg rolls for a reason.

The fresh taste of the egg rolls made for a match made in pear-fect snack heaven when next to the Asian pear mojito. Asian pears are those fat little round fruits that look more similar to an apple than a pear when you see them. They are very common to find in the fall and winter. They have a beautiful speckled look, and stay quite firm in texture. Don’t let the firmness fool you. Believed to be the oldest cultivated pear, they are packed full of delicious juice. We’ll simmer them in a simple sugar syrup to extract the aromatic essence to mix into our drinks.

Fresh and sparkling, this cocktail is the best sidekick to serve with your favorite snacks. The pear twist leaves you with a taste of fall and a plenty of simple snacks to share with friends. Cheers!

Tipsy Tuesday: Prickly Pear Mojito

If I were the betting type, I’d guess that you’ve got prickly pears in your neighborhood. Here in our high-desert climate, the Nopal cactus is very common, almost invasive, so chances are if you haven’t got one in your yard, a neighbor does! If not, have no fear. The fruit of this cactus, the Prickly Pear or “tuna”, is readily available at many farmers’ markets and ethnic grocers this time of year. (If you do have it growing nearby, you can harvest the pads or nopales, too! Singe off the sharp spines with a lighter, peel the thick outer layer with a vegetable peeler, julienne and steam or sautee as you would green beans.)

When ripe, the flesh of the Prickly Pear is a gorgeous bright, magenta color, and it tastes very sweet. It has a flavor like something between a banana and raspberries. Eaten on its own, it might be a little too sweet for some, plus it is full of hard seeds that can make it difficult to eat. But where it really shines is in cocktails (the seeds will sink to the bottom of your glass) Most especially in one of my favorite summer beverages, the Mojito, that happens to utilize another invasive crop–mint. For kids or non-drinkers, just omit the rum for a delicious limeade.

The traditional Mojito calls for simple syrup, but I like to play off of the southwestern theme and use agave instead. If you don’t have either, you can sub a sweet lemon-lime soda such as Sprite for the club soda, and you won’t need an additional sweetener.


Winter Mojito

The Mojito is a consummate summer libation: mint, rum, lime and club soda make for a refreshing and intoxicating mix that begs to be sipped out on a beachfront, lawn or front porch on a sunny afternoon. However, unless you live in its birthplace of Cuba or another tropical locale, it’s likely a good portion of the year involves fewer sunny afternoons and more cloudy, rainy and even snowy ones. But that shouldn’t keep you from enjoying a Mojito at any time of year, especially if it’s a rich and botanical variation like the Winter Mojito.

This all-season highball comes from Eden Laurin, a food and beverage consultant and a managing partner at Chicago’s famous Violet Hour, known for its bold and experimental cocktail program. In the pursuit of the perfect cold weather take on a Mojito, Laurin spices aged rum with warming cinnamon, cloves and star anise. A splash of Licor 43—a Spanish liqueur flavored with vanilla, herbs and spices—adds aromatics, and demerara syrup adds darkness and caramel notes that ordinary simple syrup does not.

While there are plenty of options for spiced rum that do not involve home infusion—such as Kraken, Cruzan 9 Spiced Rum, and Sailor Jerry—making it at home provides the opportunity to customize the flavor profile to your liking. Laurin’s recipe calls for cinnamon, clove and star anise, but feel free to tweak to your preferences. Adding ginger would bring the drink closer to a Dark & Stormy, another delicious winter rum drink. A bit of nutmeg and orange peel make for a lovely holiday sipper that goes as well in a Spiced Eggnog or Hot Buttered Rum as it does the Winter Mojito. And something as unconventional as dried peppers can add a fiery kick to really warm your insides during the colder months just be sure to check for balance before you overdo it.


But if you want to really rev up your mojito mojo, why not impress your guests with a real Asian pear twist on the classic Cuban cocktail. Here’s an update on the traditional mojito with real Asian pears put through the juicer. And to support the flavor of the pear and get the sweetness just right — apples.

The mojito is the embodiment of a traditional recipe grown up from local, available ingredients. It’s agriculturally sensitive to the land of Cuba — sugar cane, rum, mint. The Asian pear is hearty in a variety of areas around the USA and abroad. Apples and Asian pears add a fresher, more local twist of flavor.

While the commercial Asian Pear Mojito may suit certain tastes, its approach betrays the original spirit of the drink. Fresh ingredients, and fresh juice especially, will restore the agricultural spirit to the drink. ¡Salud!

  • If you’ve never eaten or cooked with pomegranate, don’t be afraid. Pomegranates have thick, tough skins and can be messy. They’re absolutely worth it, however, for their sweet, tangy taste, gorgeous color and incredible health benefits. Get a few tips for seeding and eating them here.
  • Coconut milk is not coconut cream, which is thicker and sweeter. Coconut milk is a popular ingredient in Thai and Latin American cooking. You can usually find it in the international foods section of your grocery store.

These Holiday Cheese Ball Bites are a perfect pairing for your White Christmas Mojitos. They’re bright with the colors of the season and have a similarly creamy taste.

Another great option is this warm, festive-looking Hot Spinach Spread with Pita Chips.
