Fill a quart jar about half to 2/3 full with pear slices. Add the honey, cinnamon stick, ginger root, cloves, and vanilla. Pour whiskey over to fill the jar and cover the pears. Cover with the lid. Set the jar in a dark place and gently shake once each day for 7 days or more. Strain out the pears and spices and use a funnel to pour the strained whiskey into a nice bottle or flask (especially if you’re gifting the whiskey). Enjoy sipping or add this lovely libation to tea, sangria, or cocktails. For our cocktail, we garnished the rim of the glass in cinnamon sugar and added a grilled slice of pear
and rosemary sprig for flare!
