It’s Been A Long Week: Pear Necessities

As true believers of the work hard, play hard mantra, we present you with It’s Been a Long Week, a weekly column aimed at awarding some liquid appreciation to you for just being yourself, dammit. Make yourself a glass or two, on us — you deserve it.


When it comes to tequila, we don’t really discriminate– it’s seasonless. Newcomer, Sesión tequila, founded in 2015 is uniquely distinct from the close to a thousand tequila brands that came about in the past twenty years. Offering Blanco, Reposado, and Mocha options, Sesión is a smooth, clean, and straightforward tequila that you cannot go wrong with. Its recipe for Pear Necessities adds a touch of holiday spice to the Mexican drink winter-style.



  • 1 oz Sesión Blanco Tequila
  • 1⁄2 oz citrus vodka infused with prickly pear
  • 1⁄4 oz Amaro Nonino
  • 3⁄4 oz prickly pear juice
  • 1⁄2 oz lime juice
  • 1⁄4 oz agave syrup
