Tasting Note

The Pear Martini has a deliciously harmonious sweetness to tartness ratio. With a dash of lemon to enliven the mix, the sharpness of vodka wonderfully balances the natural sweetness of the pear. Every drink has a smooth texture that dances across the tongue and leaves a cool aftertaste that begs for more.

Glassware and Equipment

A shaker, strainer, and measuring jigger are three essential bar tools for creating the ideal Pear Martini. The elegant charm of this cocktail is enhanced by the fact that it is typically served in a chilled martini glass.

Ingredients

  • 2 oz pear vodka
  • 1 oz pear juice or pear nectar
  • ½ oz fresh lemon juice
  • ½ oz simple syrup
  • 1-2 dashes orange bitters
  • Pear slice, for garnish

  2. Add the pear vodka, fresh lemon juice, simple syrup, and orange bitters to the shaker.

Pro Tips

  • Before adding the drink, rim the glass with sugar for an additional elegant touch.
  • For optimal taste, use freshly squeezed lemon juice.
  • To keep your drink cooler for longer, place your martini glass in the freezer for a few minutes before serving.

When to Serve

The Pear Martini is suitable for any kind of event. It’s an elegant alternative for wedding showers, a cool pick for summer get-togethers, and the ideal way to kick off dinner parties. If you’re in the mood for something special on a calm evening at home, this is also a great option.

Which Liquor Brands to Choose

Because of their pure, crisp pear flavors, Absolut Pears and Grey Goose La Poire make great options for the pear vodka. Cointreau or Grand Marnier for the triple sec choices will give your drink an opulent depth.
