Pear Martinis. Yes, they are blissful and I probably don’t need to explain why. If you are a pear lover that is. This cocktail  is a true taste of summer!

I had my first experience with a drink like this at the New Sheridan Chop House here in Telluride, CO.

Now it is my favorite…but do not fear. I still have flings with bourbon.

If you are looking for a crisp, cool, kinda sweet (but not too sweet ) cocktail then this might become your favorite too.

Martini glasses are very elegant but rather silly when you are a smidge tipsy, dont’cha think?

They are kinda tricky to balance without spilling. Maybe it keeps one from drinking too much. Hmmmmmm?

Anywhoos…they are pretty to hold and made even tastier with Grey Goose La Poire Vodka.

Don’t worry…if it is tricky to find Le Poire, plain vodka will do ya just fine.

Next time you have a cocktail party, I highly recommend these martinis.

Pear finely balanced with a twist of lemon, a splash of sparkling water (or sparkling pear water)…and of course the booze.

Besides it is super fun to blast music and shake a cocktail shaker to the rhythm some great tunes. Ya think? Sure!

My pal Corey from Butcher & Baker posted this on Facebook last night….give a listen….

Blissful Pear Martini



  • Rim the edge of a chilled martini glass with water. Add sugar to a bowl. Tilt the glass at a 45 degree angle and roll it in the sugar.
  • Fill a martini shaker with ice. Add the pear juice, vodka and lemon juice. Shake it to combine. Strain into sugar rimmed martini glass. Top with a splash of sparkling water and garnish with pear zest.
  • Notes
  • I have used unflavored Pellegrino and Pear Sparkling Water in this martini. Both are wonderful. The drink is a little less sweet with the unflavored water though.

Oh my that looks so good, Marla! I bet it goes down soooo easily! The photos are excellent, too. I find shooting martinis very hard. The reflective nature of both the glass and the drink itself cause my camera to get very confused! Thanks for the link, too.

There was a restaurant we used to go to in Iowa that had the best Pear Martini’s. Not sure why I never thought to make them at home!!


13 Heather Christo July 19, 2013 at 10:29 am

I will have to try this- I love pear! very pretty marla!


14 Carla @ Carlas Confections July 19, 2013 at 10:30 am

Goodness gracious! I am in love with this! It is gorgeous!


15 Shanna@ pineapple and coconut July 19, 2013 at 1:21 pm

Your photos are stunning!! And I agree I love a good martini, especially a sweet one but the glasses are a bit cumbersome. Especially when filled to the brim as soon as you lift to sip you spill ( or at least I do) some of the drink! I prefer cocktails in mason jars with handles. Something sturdy!! The pear sounds delicious. I will have to try this!

The pictures here are enough to make me feel in a party! Sounds so delightful!


17 Georgia @ The Comfort of Cooking July 19, 2013 at 2:47 pm

It’s almost five o’clock here and I feel like toasting with one of these amazing martinis! Great recipe, Marla!


18 Marta @ What Should I eat for breakfast today July 20, 2013 at 6:20 am

Martini is my favorite stronger alcohol. I like it on rocks, but it must be delicious with a pear.


19 Jen @ Savory Simple July 20, 2013 at 8:20 am

Is it bad that it’s not even noon yet and I really want this?


20 Laura (Tutti Dolci) July 20, 2013 at 1:18 pm

Mmm, yes please. I need one!


21 Julie @ Table for Two July 21, 2013 at 8:26 am

Ha! I know the feeling 😉

this winter I had a version of a Cosmo with pear vodka and now I am completely obsessed. It’s amazing how hard it can be to find though!! Rows and rows of every possible flavor- except pear! I didn’t know Grey Goose made it, until now I’ve only seen Absolute Pear. So happy to have another brand to hunt for- and I’m making this drink tonight. Looks delish!!


30 Marla March 30, 2015 at 4:48 am

Right? When I tried a similar pear martini at a local restaurant I was immediately smitten. Maybe the pear Grey Goose is more of a summer flavor? At least you found the Absolut for now!! Enjoy!
