But, here is something else that was made with some stored goodness. Some of you may remember this post on goodies that I made with pears. "The Italian" decided to use the pear syrup and a pear to make a couple of Pear Martinis. Boy, were they good!
- 1 1/2 ounces of Vodka
- 1 ounce of Pear Liqeur - he used Poire William
- 1 ounce of Pear Syrup (this could probably be substitued with pear liquid from canned pears)
- 1/2 of a canned Pear
- Crushed Ice
- Chill martini glasses with crushed ice and water
- Add some crushed ice to your martini shaker then add all ingredients, except the pear
- Shake & pour
- Serve with half of a pear
Isn't that lovely??
I'm not a big pear fan.....but I really loved this martini! It was just right and not too sweet!
What's been going in or out of your cupboard lately??
Oh yum, that sounds great - the current thing to have here is pear cider, tastes like a soft drink really thoughReplyDelete
Sorry - didn't mean to leave the comment as anonymous.ReplyDelete
I do love pear alcohol and perry (but not pear ciders - they're way to sweet). A pear martini is one for me without a doubt. In fact, I might have one in a minute, even though I'm working!!!ReplyDelete
Ohh that looks great!!ReplyDelete
Liz, It is great! I have never had pear cider before. Sounds interestingReplyDelete
IG, I think any time of the day is a good time for a martini!!
MrsP, We made 3 and split them between the two of us. I think that I had a little more then "The Italian" did :)
Pears are one of my all time favorite fruits - the sweet grainy texture is just too wonderful for words. Not a martini drinker but I can imagine that would taste lovely!ReplyDelete
As always, we are using our stored and preserved foods on a daily basis (we don't buy vegetables). Our fresh harvests have been meager the past two weeks and likely will continue to be so for another two or three weeks as the older crops are getting depleted from prior harvests and the younger ones coming along are not quite ready yet, but soon! Not to say we dont' have fresh harvests, just minimal in comparison to the use of preserved and stored items. My fresh harvests always start increasing after the first week of February - happenes to just coincide with imbolc (Feb 2) when we turn the corner on ramping up the amount and strength of available sunlight.
Oh boy: A PEAR martini! Gonna' take the fixn's up to the cabin this weekend for the "girls". Thanks!ReplyDelete
That pear martini sounds yummy! Next time you make one, have a sip for me. ;-)ReplyDelete
Not big into Martinis but do love pears.ReplyDelete
That is one nice looking drink. Love the pear in the glass. Very classy.ReplyDelete
Those martinis look wonderful! I might try something like that with some of the apricots I put up ....ReplyDelete
Thank goodness the garden produced :o) my cupboard is looking good and I won't eat it all up this year either.ReplyDelete
Lynda, Sounds good to me!! Enjoy!ReplyDelete
Dave, I'll have two for you!
Jane, They were yummy!
Deb, An apricot martini would be devine!
Ginny, Our cupboard is doing well keeping us in food. I'm glad that yours is too!
That's it! We're planting a pear tree just so we can make that fine drink and all the other wonderful things you've made with pears. I think there's space in the front yard for just such a tree.ReplyDelete
Do you have preference regarding pear varieties?ReplyDelete
Jody, That sounds like a plant to me! Now, get digging!ReplyDelete
Norma, I just started eating pears. So, I am not a good judge. "The Italian" does like Bartlet pears though.
So what if it is only noon? I am really tempted to make this!ReplyDelete
PrairieCat, Like the song says "it's five o'clock some where"!!ReplyDelete
