Fresh Pear Martini

2 oz. Absolut Pears

.5 oz. St. Germain Elderflower

Half of a local pear

.5 oz. Simple Syrup

Fresh-squeezed juice from one lemon

Pick your favorite local pear, and muddle half of the pear with the simple syrup and fresh-squeezed lemon juice. Add the Absolut Pears and St. Germain and shake ice cold. Add a slice of pear or an edible flower for a fun finishing touch.

Secrets to shake it up:

  • For a bit more pear flavor pick your favorite vodka, slice up a few of your local favorite pears and let infuse for a few days for your own pear vodka infusion.
  • If you enjoy a sweeter flavor, add more simple syrup or a sugar rim for the perfect extra sweet touch.
