Juicing citrus with its peel can be risky business, but a handful of whole kumquats (peel, seeds, and all) gives this juice a wonderful brightness and tartness, plus a touch of bitterness that makes it almost cocktail-like. Ginger adds a little spice, and pear gives the combination a rich, smooth texture and just enough sweetness.
