Pear Martini

November 2nd, 2008 - 11:48pm by Slye Fox

Seems like there're as many pear martini recipes as there are types of pears. I played around for a good part of the week trying various ways of consuming Absolut Pear vodka and here's my final cut:

  • 4 oz Pear Vodka - Absolut makes a fine one.
  • 1 oz Disaronno - don't even pretend that there's a different kind of amaretto
  • splash of grapefruit juice
  • juice from 1/2 a lime

Shake all ingredients with ice in a shaker until it sweats and strain into martini glasses. Garnish with a pear slice if you've got it, else a lime slice works fine.

I like these kinds of experiments, I'll have to come up with some other martini recipes so I can perfect them and drink all the "mistakes". ;)

In other drink/Manfort related news:

I taught some of the girls how to play Mexican Train dominoes with my new set. We sipped pear martinis and discussed other possible drink names. A few that I remember:

  • God's Vagina
  • Dusty Scrotum

I can't imagine what ingredients either might call for, but neither sound all that appetizing to me. ;P

That's right -- you did mention the ingredients to that one. And it doesn't sound so bad at all, in fact. (I'll take vag over scrotum any day anyway.)

It's actually not bad at all. Reminds me of the cranberry drinks you make.

I have a friend who makes Irish Cream from scratch. Any interest in that?

I heard of that at the Pirate Party. Sounds a little frightening, frankly.

yum! know of any barack obama-themed martinis?

Slye Fox says:

Ha -- no I don't, but is it too cliche to create a Chocolat Martini and call it the Obama-bomb?
