I have made this for several events now both with alcohol and without. It is always a hit either way. When I couldn't find pear nectar I had to use apricot nectar and it was still great.

In the fall, I like to drink fresh cider with Applejack. I decided to use the Applejack instead of bourbon in this recipe and it was so good!

We served this over the weekend for our annual Pumpkin Fondue party. Everyone loved it. I mad a big batch and it was perfect. Very light and refreshing. Definitely not too boozy for us.

Just to add, my non-bourbon-drinking friends loved this as well.

I made this yesterday for a New Year's Day brunch, and it was a total hit! I didn't thnk there was too much bourbon at all, but I'm a bourbon drinker, so take that however you want. Anyway, I will definitely be making this again.

I made this without the bourbon and it was just a really nice non-alcoholic punch that everyone enjoyed.

You have to really like the taste of the bourbon you use in this punch because it overpowers the taste of the pear nectar
