Pear Martini – Recipe!

Print Friendly

Martini’s are a very festive drink, no matter the season or celebration.  My favorite martini is a Manhattan because I am a fan of Rye Whiskey and Carpano Antica, an Italian vermouth.  However, there are a few other martini’s I enjoy like a Dirty Martini with a splash of olive juice and a skewer of Bleu Cheese olives.  During the holidays, I like to create a new cocktail that is elegant with the right holiday flair – Pear Martini, fits the bill.

This cocktail is perfect to serve at parties or for a quite evening at home.  The pear flavors are subtle and smooth and it goes nicely with little holiday nibbles.  It’s definitely a celebration drink!

1 1/2 ounces creme de poire
