Pear Martini – Recipe!

Print Friendly

Martini’s are always a popular drink, no matter the season and my favorite martini just happens to be 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 big splash of olive juice, and a skewer of bleu cheese olives.  During the fall however,  I start to think about apples and pears, and how I can incorporate those flavors into a festive drink.

Pears are mild in flavor, yet enhance a cocktail with fall taste without being overly sweet.  A pear martini made with Creme de Poire, brandy and vodka creates a smooth and subtle drink, perfect for sipping this time of the year.  It’s a nice cocktail to serve at small gatherings, or for a quite evening at home.  It will definitely set the tone for the next few months to come.
