This simple yet elegant cocktail packs a serious flavor punch. Similar to a Bee's Knees, a splash of spiced pear liqueur adds a spicy sweetness a rich flavor to a tart classic. Legend has it that the Warthog was created by Jim McCourt of Prohibition Charleston, and crafted “in honor of his pet pig Bella and her love of pears and lemons.” Anything for our pets, amirite?
