Happy Hour: The Devil Pears Prada

Yesterday the folks at Absolut sent us a bottle of their new Absolut (Pears), and I'd like to think that I'm not easily bribed, but how could we NOT try it? We figured pre-happy hour cocktails would be a nice treat for the office, so we whipped up something called The Devil PEARS Prada (the recipe arrived with the bottle) and called it an early night.

Let me just say right now, at first I was a little skeptical. However, an initial shot proved to be smooth and was exactly what we expected (pear flavored vodka). It was also a bit artificial smelling (like Jolly Rancher candy) and I was worried that it would be too sweet. However, mixed in this ratio, it was really quite mellow. And the wildest part was that it gave the drink a nice pear taste, without the alcohol-y aftertaste. Translation: you are going to get drunk on accident.

The Devil PEARS Prada
From the folks at Absolut

4 oz Absolut Pears*
1/2 oz Apple Juice
1 oz White Grape Juice
1 1/2 oz Peach Puree
1 oz Lime Juice

Shake all ingredients and strain into two martini glasses.
Garnish with a pear slice.

* If you try a different pear flavored vodka, let me know! I'd really be interested to hear how it turns out!

** I forgot to bring the lime juice to the office. Without it, the drink was severely lacking acidity, so we substituted with the juice of some oranges we had in the office.
