So much to do, so little time…oh wait. I’m supposed to have more time than ever during all of this social distancing, and somehow, I have less. Anyone else losing time? 😉 Sit six feet apart, sip this soulful brandy-punched martini, and talk about all the things you’re (not) getting done.
Five Star French Pear Martini
2 1/2 oz Vodka
1 oz Eau-de-Vie de Poire William (Williams Pear Brandy)
1 Dash Old Fashioned Bitters (or Angostura Bitters)
1 Large Fresh Pear
2 Slices Fresh Ginger
Juice 1 Large Pear with 2 slices of Ginger. Pour into your shaker with ice. Add the vodka, pear brandy, and a dash of Old Fashioned Bitters (I’m using Dashfire Bitters
, delicious!). Shake vigorously and pour into a beautiful martini glass. (I thought this one looked a bit like an upside down pear, perfect!) Garnish with slices of pear and a fun flower for color.
The fancy glass and over-the-top garnish will make you feel as though you’re at an upscale bar rather than in your backyard or at the kitchen…that’s piled with dishes. I’ll get on that. Later. Right now, I’m working on fancy photos of pears…
I’ve gotten a few gadgets (understatement) during the COVID crisis and a juicer was one of my better purchases. I’ll be joining an online-shopaholics anonymous any day now….any day…I just need to get that air fryer.
How are you getting through…let me know below! And let me know if you enjoy the pear brandy 🍸
Keep your heels, head and standards high and your home a happy one.
