Peartini

I’ve posted about this before but I’m going to do it again as I changed the garnish and the company.

The peartini is very easy. My rough recipe is as follows:

1 part vermouth
2.5 parts gin
3 parts pear juice from a tin
Garnish with one or two pear slices

And adjust the measurements to taste. It’s not really set in stone.

It’s sweet and not as strong as a full martini, so it’s a nice after dinner drink instead of a dessert (some people might think that sacrilegious which I accept – I don’t eat many desserts).

For the garnish, slice the pear to shape, then cut a small insertion in the thick end so that it can fit onto the glass.

And there you go.

All you need now is some company.

Pear martini

Similar to a lychee martini.

1 part vermouth.
2.5 parts gin
3 parts pear juice from a tin
Garnish with one or two pear slices

And adjust the measurements to taste.

It’s sweet and not as strong as a full martini. It goes well after dinner.
