You’re going to love this Pear Martini. It’s the perfect cocktail for a special occasion or everyday. It’s delicious with a crisp pear flavor and a splash of St. Germain Liqueur!
After purchasing a bottle of my new favorite liqueur, St. Germain, I was inspired to create a new cocktail recipe. As you can see, this Pear Martini was born; and boy is she delicious!
It might be my new favorite!
So I hopped on over to the St-Germain website to do a little recipe research. When I found a recipe for a pear martini, I knew I’d struck gold. After a bit of testing and a few tweaks I made this recipe my own.
What’s in a Pear Martini:
- pear vodka
- St. Germain liqueur
- freshly squeeze lemon juice
With fall quickly approaching I thought pear was more than appropriate. Plus, it gave me an excuse to pick up some pear vodka. However, to be honest, this Pear Martini would be delicious any time of the year.
I’ve always found the flavor of pears to be pretty incredible even though I rarely eat them. That’s kind of weird, right? I suppose it makes it an extra special treat when I do have them.
Anyway, this martini is stellar. If you love the flavor of pears, then I promise you will adore this. The pear vodka (I recommend Absolut) has such a bright and crisp pear flavor. It works perfectly with a splash of lemon juice and the St. Germain. It was meant to be!

And did you spot anything else in these pictures?
I used my DIY gold magnetic letters and my new vintage cocktail shaker. Total perfection, right? This is why I make and buy these things. They make photo shots like this special and personal. Oh, and if you want to see a little behind-the-scene’s shot of how I photograph this stuff, check out this image on my Instagram feed.
Now, while you sip on this delicious Pear Martini, I’m off to Pittsburgh, PA tomorrow for a fabulous and fun-filled long weekend with my friends. Anyone live in the Pittsburgh area?
What’s on your Labor Day weekend agenda? Have a happy one!
