Delicious Pear Martini with Fresh Sage Leaf Garnish
I’ve made a lot of martinis in my lifetime. Being a bartender off and on, it was unavoidable. But, I don’t recall ever making pear martinis at any bar I worked at. If I’d known about them then, I might have imbibed a whole lot more than would have been good for me.
This martini packs a punch, but still tastes delicous, smooth and refreshing. It has a thicker consistency than some other martinis and therefore feels a little bit more substantial as you drink it.
I hope you’ll try the recipe!
Pear Martini Recipe
1/2 oz Grand Marnier or Ginger Liqueur
1 oz vodka
2 oz pear nectar or pear juice
Fresh sage leaf for garnish
* Place all ingredients except the sage leaf into a shaker.
* Shake vigorously to mix.
* Sugar the rim of a martini glass. I like to use coconut sugar or brown sugar, they seem to go better with the pear taste.
* Strain shaker contents into martini glass, leaving some of the ice in the drink, and add fresh sage leaf garnish on top.
