My husband and I went on a date to Bonefish grill and tried these Pear drop martinis. I was a little leery because I hate paying $9 for a drink that is awful. When I find a place that makes a good cocktail I shout it out to everyone I know because I know how hard it can be to find. Well this drink was so fantastic that I couldn't stop thinking about it. I was now on a mission to make my own and the bartender told me what he put in it but I still need to know just how much of each ingredient. My first attempt was to sour but the second attempt was amaze balls and even my sister and mom said it was just right. They tell me the honest truth and are as picky as me so I know now I have a winner and is why it is now up on my blog.
The pear vodka was not easy to find and as far as I know only Absolut makes it. If you find another brand please let me know.
Try it and let me know what you think.
1 part Absolut Pear vodka
3/4 part fresh lemon juice
1/2 part Triple sec
1/2 part simple syrup
1/4 of fresh pear (optional)
lemon for rim
sugar for rim
1/2 cup ice
Chill glass in freezer.
In a shaker add ice and piece of pear and muddle. If you don't have pear no worries it is just as good without it. The pear is great because it makes it just a bit more creamy. Add all other ingredients and a little more ice and shake well. Rim the glass with lemon and sugar. pour into glass and serve.
Serves one but you can double to make two at a time.
