In the bottom of a shaker, muddle together mint leaves, simple syrup, and lime juice.
Add rum and bitters to shaker, along with ice cubes. Shake well and strain into cocktail glasses (I recommend coup glasses).
Top glasses off with prosecco and garnish with cheese and pears cubes.
Pear Simple Syrup
Put chopped pears, sugar, and water in a medium saucepan and bring to a boil. Lower heat and let simmer for about 15 minutes, until mixture is thickened.
Strain the mixture into a bowl, being sure to press down on the pears to extract as much juice as possible. Keep syrup in bowl or pour into a mason jar and place in fridge to cool completely before using.
Pear simple syrup recipe makes enough for 4 Pear Old Cuban cocktails. Recipe can be easily doubled or tripled.
