English Pear Martini


Pin It Now!

One the first day of Christmas, my bartender made for me, an Absolut perfect pear martini…

I have found a new favorite vodka--Absolut Pear. Any cocktail my sister-in-law used this alcohol in was delicious. This martini is like drinking a ripe pear with a hint of pineapple (oh, how I love pineapple). Too bad pears are out of season; a fresh pear slice or even a big chunk of pineapple that had been soaked in vodka would make a great garnish. Also, a light sprinkle of cinnamon to finish it off as well. This is definitely a drink I'm going to bookmark and enjoy over and over.

makes 1 (8 oz) martini

2 oz Absolut Pear vodka
1 oz Bombay Sapphire Gin
1 oz pineapple juice
¼ oz lime juice
½ oz simple syrup*

Shake ingredients together in cocktail shaker, strain into chilled glass. Garnish with a lime twist (or even better a pear or pineapple slice), if desired.

*to make simple syrup, mix equal parts sugar and water and heat until sugar is dissolved. We used a couple Tbls of each and microwaved in 30 second intervals, stirring each time; just because we didn't want to bother with the stove.
