This Triple Pear-tini recipe comes from a friend of mine in San Diego named Andrea, by the way, happens to be a fabulous cook. She even went to cooking school so you know when she cooks something it’s going to be good. One night we had a dinner party at my house and Andrea made some delicious pear martinis. I loved them so much that I wanted to share her recipe with you today.
This is a blended, not strained, drink, but I still pour it into a martini glass, of course! It uses fresh pears, pear vodka and pear liqueur, the reason I named it a “Triple Pear-tini.” Andrea’s recipe calls for Comice pears which many people consider to be the best eating pear with a smooth sweet flesh. But if you have another type of pear, that’s okay too, go ahead and use whatever kind you have, it will still be yummy!
- 2½ ripe Comice pears, peeled and rough chopped (save the other ½ pear for garnishing)
- ¼ C. sugar
- 1 C. pear vodka (I use Absolute)
- 2 oz. good pear liqueur (I used J Pear Liqueur)
- 2 oz. lime juice
- 12 ice cubes
