Happy Hour: The Lucky Pears Faux-jito


A little while back we gave you a sampling of pear vodka and if you haven't tasted it yet, what are you waiting for? Pear vodka is everywhere, it's the vodka to mix in your specialty drinks. Being that St. Patty's is tomorrow I have the perfect green, mint infused cocktail recipe. This is an exclusive concoction being served tomorrow at the St. Patrick's Day celebration at Nurse Bettie in New York City. The drink is an interesting interpretation of a mojito with a blend of the vodka, midori sour, and white grape juice. Sound like a refreshing alternative to drinking beer? Check out the recipe and

I'm SO excited for this, I can't even tell you. I've been dying to try the Pear Vodkas, but had no idea what it would mix well with. I'm going straight from work to the grocery store and making myself one of these delicious cocktails when I get home! Thanks!!!!
