If you're a pear fan this Sparkling Pear Martini is a great way to ring in the New Year. The Champagne and pear flavors really blend nicely for a subtle taste. I like fresh pear juice from the Comice pear if I can get them but bottled juice is okay. What's critical in this martini is a good pear brandy and a quality Champagne or sparkling wine.
If you're new to drinking Champagne be aware that a sparkling wine cannot truly be called Champagne unless it comes from the Champagne region of France. All other "champagnes" are technically sparkling wines that use the champenoise method, many of which are excellent choices for your New Year's Champagne Martinis!
A little reminder for a safe, happy and healthy New Year's celebration: According to the National Highway Traffic Commission 41% of all traffic fatalities occur during the New Year's period.
PLEASE DRINK RESPONSIBLY, assign a designated driver if you're going to be traveling anywhere, make use of the free taxi rides many cities offer and be prepared with a place for your own guests to stay overnight!
MAY YOU ALL HAVE
A SAFE, HAPPY NEW YEAR'S EVE!
PLEASE DRINK RESPONSIBLY
