INGREDIENTS

  • 2 parts vodka (pear vodka, if you have it)
  • 2 parts pear puree*
  • 1 part pear liqueur (I use Mathilde Poire Liqueur)
  • 1 part freshly squeezed lemon juice, strained
  • 1 part simple syrup (You can use a smaller amount of syrup if you prefer your cocktail less sweet.)

* It’s best to use pears that are well-ripened and juicy.

DIRECTIONS

  • Run a wedge of lemon around the rim of a martini glass.
  • Dip rim in sugar.
  • Fill cocktail shaker with ice.
  • Pour martini mix into shaker and shake vigorously.
  • Strain pear martini into martini glass and garnish with a pear slice.

    Pears are my least favorite fruit however, I just might develop a liking for them. 🙂

    Blouse,

    You are welcome to come visit at any time. I enjoy entertaining here. I spend so much of my time at home caring for my granddaughter that I don’t get out as much as I used to. Both my husband and I enjoy cooking…and company. I know Mike would LOVE you!
