Spiced Pear Martini
To make the Spiced Pear Vodka:
  • 1 bottle vodka
  • 3 pears, sliced
  • 2 cinnamon sticks
  • 2" piece of ginger (I sliced it but didn't bother to peel it)
  • 20 whole cloves
To make the Martini:
  • 2 shots spiced pear vodka
  • ½ shot ginger liqueur (I used Canton)
  • 1 Shot white cranberry juice
  • Squeeze of fresh lemon juice
  • Garnish: 1 piece of crystalized ginger (or a slice of fresh pear or lemon)
To make the infused vodka:
  1. In large jar, combine vodka, pears and spices. Store in dark cabinet. Shake every day. Let sit about a week.
  2. When ready, strain vodka through a fine mesh strainer into a clean container. Discard solids. I like to store my vodka in the freezer.
To make the martini:
