Pear Tini

A perfect social drink.  The color is pale yellow, almost white with an intense flavor of pear and lemon that blend together nicely.   A rim of cinnamon powder and sugar that gives this summery martini it's fresh taste.


Pear Tini
Serves 1
Recipe adapted from Cafe Firenze

Ingredients:
1-1/4 oz (5 counts) Pear Vodka
1 oz (4 counts) Fresh pear nectar
1/2 oz (2 counts) sweet and sour
1/4 oz (1 count) Triple Sec
1 lime wedge (squeezed)

Directions:
Grab the mixing glass and pour 1-1/4 oz of infused pear vodka then 1 oz of pear nectar.  Make sure it is nectar and not juice otherwise your drink will be runny and flavorless instead of smooth and slick.  Now add the 1/4 oz of triple sec and 1/2 oz of sweet and sour.  For the drink to have the best result it has to be made with the best products!  

Shake it and pour it in a chilled and cinnamon rimmed martini glass and Salute!

I love your drink posts, Velva. I think we could be best friends if I lived closer. I could be your tester! Licking my lips at this one!
I saw someone make a pear vinaigrette on the Cooking Channel last week and it looked wonderful.

Okay, wow. That looks outstanding. I bet this is one of those naughty drinks that you enjoy at the bar and then fall straight on the floor when you get up to go to the bathroom :) Well done!

I have some leftover vodka after making the vanilla extract. Do you think I can use the plain flavour vodka too? Hopefully, I won't get drunk. hahaha.... Enjoy your day!

Not a fan of pear as a fruit, the texture, but I'd love it as a cocktail! Looks so good.

You always have the most amazing drinks. I like the spice used. Have tried appletinis and they were a bit sweet for my taste - this looks like a go!
