This post was supposed to be a soup recipe but the weather changed here is San Diego. The soup recipe also had pears from Stemilt Growers in it but we went from cold and rainy to sunny and warm. I couldn’t bring myself to cook soup on such a nice day. I needed something cold and refreshing like this Cucumber Pear Juice.

I still love my Breville juicer that I got last year. If you’re got enough room to store a juicer in your home, then I highly recommend them. I enjoy fresh vegetable juices more than I thought I would. I always add a little bit of fruit or something on the sweet side like carrots to make the juice slightly more interesting. Fresh juice is so much better for you than what you buy in the stores. I’d rather drink juice where I know it’s 100% from fruit and vegetables not chemicals or sugar. If you like making your own juice try my Sweet Beet Juice or Fruity Green Juice recipes as well.

I have a jar of Luxardo maraschino cherries sitting in my fridge. I went out of my way to mix a cocktail just so I could use these little delights. Yep, I created this Cherry Vanilla Vodka Cocktail just to eat maraschino cherries. The syrup is so fragrant with vanilla and tart from the cherries. Once you have the syrup together, the drink is a simple. It’s serious just the syrup, sparkling water and vodka. Oh, and of course the glorious maraschino cherry.
