Today I wanted to start a short series on elevated cocktails for the new year
Don’t worry about taking notes as I am giving out the ingredients and instructions. They are always posted on bourbongospel.com
French Pear Martini
- 1 ½ oz. St. Germain Elderflower liqueur
- 1 ½ oz. Pear Vodka
- Chilled Champagne
- Granulated sugar for the rim
- 1 lemon, wedged
- 1 pear, sliced
Prepare your garnishes by slicing a lemon into wedges and the pear into rounds.
Tip: To prevent pear from discoloring, squeeze a lemon over cut slices.
To prepare martini glasses, run a lemon wedge around the rim and dip into sugar.
In a cocktail shaker filled with ice, combine St. Germain and Pear Vodka. Shake vigorously until well chilled.
Strain into prepared martini glass and top with champagne.
Garnish with a round of pear and a festive stir stick.
