Just looking for new recipes featuring pear vodka since I have a HUGE bottle to play with. There are other versions of this on Zaar, but they all call for cranberry juice. Recipe from the Absolute website. NOTE: this is a pretty strong martini, not a fun, fruity cocktail, so feel free to increase the amount of juice to your taste.. .serving it ice cold is key.
- 2 ounces pear vodka
- 1 ounce apple juice
- 1 dash grenadine
- Chill a martini glass in the freezer.
- Pour vodka, apple juice and grenadine into a shaker. Fill the shaker with ice cubes and shake it until the shaker is very cold.
- Strain the drink into the martini glass and serve.
This was SO good. I have been dying to try pear vodka and this was the perfect way to start enjoying it. It was crisp and clean, not at all sweet which I felt was wonderful. Pear vodka has an inticingly romantic perfume about it and this was the best way show it off. I was out of grenadine so I did a spalsh of Chambord. "Just" enough to give it a slight blush color. I am now wishing I bought the larger bottle of pear vodka.
