You are going to love my Pear Martini recipe. It’s the perfect cocktail for a special occasion or every day. It is super delicious with a crisp pear flavor and a splash of St. Germain Liqueur. A simple and refreshing pear martini made with pear vodka, homemade Thymes Simple syrup.
With the Fall Season, I thought pear was more appropriate, gave me an excuse to pick up some pear vodka. But this Pear Martini would be delicious any time of the year. I use simple syrup (sugar and water) in a lot of my cocktails. It is a clear sugar syrup consisting of equal parts water and sugar melted on the stove on very low heat. It is a universal cocktail sweetener that dissolves in your drink. You can buy Simple Syrup at your local market of the liquor store, but fresh is always better. I highly recommend making a jar of simple syrup and storing it in the fridge for a cocktail such as this recipe. Having simple syrup on hand makes stirring up the pear martini and other classic cocktails a breeze.
For this drink I used:
Pear Flavored Martini… The title says it all
2 Parts Pear Vodka (I used Absolut)
1 Part Pear Juice
½ oz St Germain
½ Thymes Simple syrup (I made my own, handful of Thyme added to the sugar in water in a pot for 10 mins) BASIC SIMPLE SYRUP
1 cup Sugar
1 cup Water
Let cool for 30mintues before pouring into your drink.
Top with Prosecco
Fill in a Martini Shaker with ice
Add all Ingredients except for Prosecco
Shake it for 10-15 seconds or until shaker is extremely cold on the outside
Pour into a chilled martini glass top with Prosecco and garnish with a pear slice.
