Pear Martini

Seems like there are as many pear martini recipes as there are types of pears. I played around for a good part of the week trying various ways of consuming Absolut Pear vodka and here's my final cut:
  • 4 oz Pear Vodka - Absolut makes a fine one.
  • 1 oz Disaronno - don't even pretend that there's a different kind of amaretto
  • splash of grapefruit juice
  • 1/2 oz Lime Juice
  • Pear
Chill an up glass with crushed ice and water. Shake the ingredients with ice in a shaker until it sweats. Strain into the glass and garnish with a couple of pear slices.
I like these kinds of experiments, I'll have to come up with some other martini recipes so I can perfect them and drink all the "mistakes". ;)
