Bite into a Pear Martini

This month both Bon Appetit and Food & Wine magazines carried advertisements for Grey Goose La Poire Vodka and a recipe for a Peartini. I’m sure the Grey Goose version is fabulous. I did not have all of the ingredients on hand, so I made a pjpink version.

pjpink’s Pear-kissed Martini

  • a splash of orange-flavored liqueur (I am down to the last remnants of my bottle of Gran Gala)
  • a shot (or more) of vodka (Skyy is my usual suspect – I think it has something to do with the blue bottle)
  • a splash of orange juice
  • pear nectar to taste (The Fresh Market had the stuff on sale this week)

A nice way to unwind on a very mild February evening. Cheers!
