I’ve posted about this before but I’m going to do it again as I changed the garnish and the company.
The peartini is very easy. My rough recipe is as follows:
1 part vermouth
2.5 parts gin
3 parts pear juice from a tin
Garnish with one or two pear slices
And adjust the measurements to taste. It’s not really set in stone.
It’s sweet and not as strong as a full martini, so it’s a nice after dinner drink instead of a dessert (some people might think that sacrilegious which I accept – I don’t eat many desserts).
For the garnish, slice the pear to shape, then cut a small insertion in the thick end so that it can fit onto the glass.
And there you go.
All you need now is some company.
