Happy Hour: A Perfect Peartini

I'm not a huge fan of fruity martinis because they often taste too fake to me. Yet I'm also not one to turn down a cocktail, so when a friend recently offered me a pear martini, I was happy to keep an open mind. The concoction she mixed — featuring Grey Goose's pear-flavored vodka — was smooth, strong, not too sweet, and not the slightest bit artificial tasting.

Pears are at their peak right now, so why not experiment with a Peartini of your own? The amaretto liqueur provides a nice contrast to the lemon juice, and you can use fresh pear slices for garnish. The recipe lets you mix up the cocktail by the glass or the batch; to get it,


From Grey Goose Vodka

2 parts Grey Goose La Poire
1/4 part Disaronno or other amaretto liquer
1/4 part simple syrup
1/2 part lemon juice
Pear slice for garnish

  1. Place all ingredients in a cocktail shaker filled with ice.
  2. Shake vigorously until the outside of the shaker is frosted and beaded with sweat.
  3. Strain into a cocktail glass.
  4. Garnish with a pear slice.

I had our bartender make me Pear Cosmo's for my 31st birthday because I wanted something different. Instead of adding Absolut Citron, she added Absolut Pear instead. We ran out of the Pear vodka QUICK that night!
