Pear Martini

A true taste of summer if you love pears…a crisp, cool, and sweet (but not too sweet) cocktail.

Ingredients:

  • 120ml pear vodka
  • 1 pear sliced
  • 30ml lime juice, freshly squeezed
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 1 dash angostura bitters
  • Ice
  • 90ml sparkling mineral water

 

Method:

  • Drizzle the lime juice over the pear slices to add flavour and prevent browning. Be sure to get a little on all sides.
  • In a cocktail shaker, add two slices of fresh pear, and mash with a muddling stick. You don’t have to beat it to a pulp, but muddle for about 30 seconds to get the slices broken up.
  • Add pear vodka, any remaining lime juice, sugar, a dash of bitters, and some ice.
  • Shake the ingredients together, and strain into a chilled martini glass.
  • Top off with sparkling mineral water, and garnish with remaining slices of pear.
