The
PARTRIDGE IN A PEAR MARTINI
Can you see why I named it that?

INGREDIENTS
1 Oz. Vodka
1/2 Cup of Fresh Pear Puree
1 Oz. Sparkling Cherry Juice
1/4 Tsp. Freshly Grated Ginger
1/2 Oz. Fresh Lemon Juice
1 Tsp. Lavender Honey
Ice

Garnish: Pear Slice

Tools: Cocktail shaker

Glass: Cocktail (Martini)

DIRECTIONS
 Chill your glass in the freezer.
Fill the cocktail shaker with ice.
Add the pear puree, vodka, lemon juice, lavender honey and ginger.
Shake until chilled, pour into the chilled glass, top off with the sparkling cherry juice.
Garnish and serve.


This is an absolutely wonderful way to use a ripe pear.  I added a pinch of fresh ginger for a little spicy kick but feel free to use a pinch of powdered ginger if you want, just be very judicious and don't use too much or you run the danger of the ginger overpowering the delicate pear.

Yes, it's a perfectly named martini for Christmas but I was actually thinking more of The Partridge Family because the pear garnish looked like their logo:

So, Come On, DRINK Happy at happy hour with my Partridge in a Pear Martini.
