This was perfect, I use the brand "Pama" pomegranate liqueur and white cranberry juice although red is just as good. Before finding this recipe I was making something similar only with Vanilla vodka... I never thought of using Pear vodka...yummy !-08 Jan 2009


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&rsquod struck gold. After a bit of testing and a few tweaks I made this recipe my own.


Pear And Elderflower Martini

Ingredients

Wet the rim of a martini glass and top with brown sugar. Add 2 oz of Pear Vodka, 3/4 oz of Elderflower liquor and float with Prosecco.
You can add a pear as a garnish if you like.

The brown sugar rim gives it a nice, sweet taste and pairs perfectly with the pear vodka.

A big thank you to my Sister, Lori, for sharing her recipe for this Pear and Elderflower Martini For the Summer Cocktail Series.

We are already at Week 5 and I have found so many great new cocktails from the other bloggers participating.

You can check out their yummy creations in the links below.

Pear & pomegranate champagne cocktail

We’re about to ring in a new year with this easy to throw together pear and pomegranate champagne cocktail! And before you even ask, here’s your guide to buying vegan bubbly.


What an incredible year it’s been! If I can just brag for a moment… this blog grew exponentially in under 12 months and I managed to launch a YouTube channel this year as well that’s now reached over 53,000 subscribers. Holy vegan cannoli! I can’t believe it! I’m so excited to ring in 2016 because I can’t wait to see what kind of magic it holds for hot for food.

Thank you so much for the love and support you show hot for food on the interwebs. Together we’re really making people see that vegan food is exciting and nom worthy! Pretty sure that deserves a toast, right?

Well then, shake up this easy but fancy champagne cocktail tonight just before the clock strikes twelve and make a wish!

If you want to round out your celebration with some equally fancy appies try my version of vegan caviar on cornmeal blinis, these vegan oysters rockefeller, or some scrumptious vegan sausage rolls.


Another option is for you to whip up pomegranate martini with tequila. Swap out the vodka for some tequila and for an extra boost add in a light dash some orange blossom water.

You might want to start your Martini Cocktail with your very own homemade pomegranate juice, in which case you need to know how to juice a pomegranate.

Step 1. Split the pomegranate into quarters and add these to a bowl of water.

Step 2. The using your fingers remove the pomegranate seeds from each section (and the pith) into the water. The seeds will sink to the bottom and the pith will float to the top. Discard the pith and the pomegranate peel.

Step 3. Drain the pomegranate seeds using a sieve and remove any remaining pith.

Step 4. Add the pomegranate seeds to a blender and pulse for a few goes so that the seeds release their juices.

Step 5. Decant the pomegranate seeds into a sieve set over a bowl and using the back of a spoon squeeze the seeds to extract the juice.

Step 6. Discard the pomegranate seed pulp and use the juice as desired.


Pear Salad

Fresh pear salad filled with mixed greens, juicy sliced pears, pomegranate seeds, candied pecans, feta cheese and topped with a balsamic dressing. This is the perfect salad to serve at your holiday dinner this year!

This is one of my favorite salads to make for the holidays! It always looks so pretty on the dinner table and tastes delicious. It’s definitely on my Thanksgiving menu this year.

The holidays are filled with lots of heavy side dishes, so it’s nice to have a fresh and healthy option at the table too. This pear salad is one of my favorites to make at Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner, as well as my easy fall salad or apple cranberry spinach salad. The flavors taste so delicious this time of year!

I like to buy enough of the ingredients to make extras, too. After a day of indulging, my body usually craves a big salad. So this is the perfect way to get in extra fruit and veggies after a day of celebrating. It’s so delicious that you won’t even remember it’s healthy!


Best Martini Recipes

My husband and I recently went to a holiday gathering and the host created a small menu card that was placed on an easel and set on the bar.

The cocktail menu card listed 3 of their best martini recipes with all the ingredients shown so the guests could pick the one they wanted and the bartender could quickly mix it for them.

That little menu card is the best idea! How many times do you get to a bar or party and not really know what you want to drink? It happens to me all the time. When the bartender comes over and asks for my order, I pause and ponder and think until something comes to mind and then I order. What a waste of time.

I love restaurants and bars that offer a drink menu because I like to try new things and having a list of the establishment's best martini recipes and cocktails helps me make a decision and saves the bartender time.

Consider These Best Martini Recipes

So when you are hosting your own theme event, especially holiday parties, why not offer a cocktail menu? Pick out a few of your best holiday martini recipes and type them up on a card. Laminate it if you have time and set it out on your bar.

A year ago, I created a menu for my own personal use and now I am making it available to Theme Party Queen visitors. Click here to learn more about our free Cocktail Ideas Menu. It has 12 of our best martini recipes and 8 cocktails. Mine is laminated and sits in an easel on my bar.

If you don't have a person you can designate as a bartender for the evening, just mix up 3 pitchers full of your best martini recipes or cocktails, place a menu card on the bar near the pitchers and you will be ready to serve as your guests arrive. They will be able to quickly look at the cocktail menu card, know what is in each pitcher and make a decision.

An added benefit of offering only a few of your best martini recipes and cocktails on a menu card is that guests can get their own refills when the party really gets going. Here are a few of our favorite recipes for a holiday martini.

Pomegranate Martini Recipe

Anything pomegranate seems to be popular these days so this pomegranate martini recipe is a perfect holiday martini to offer your guests. Love this with the citrus vodka. So much better than with regular vodka.

  • 1/2 ounce simple syrup
  • 1-1/2 ounces citrus vodka
  • 1 ounce pomegranate juice, unsweetened if you can find it
  • Marashino cherries

In a cocktail shaker combine simple syrup, vodka and pomegranate juice with plenty of ice. Cover and shake.

Strain into a martini glass and garnish cherries. Makes one Pomegranate cocktail, a perfect holiday martini.

NOTE: You can buy bottled simple syrup but can also make your own simple syrup easily enough. It's just equal parts of sugar and water simmered until sugar dissolves then refrigerated.

Sidecar Cocktail

It was about a week before my 22nd wedding anniversary that I saw a Rachael Ray travel episode that was filmed in Chicago near where I live. In the episode she talked about going to the top of the John Hancock building to "The Signature Room", one of Chicago's elite restaurants, and enjoying a Sidecar Cocktail.

My husband and I were planning a weekend celebration so we decided to take Rachael's advice. I ordered a Sidecar cocktail at The Signature Room (what a view. ) and absolutely loved it. With only 3 ingredients, it is easy to make and perfect for a holiday dinner party.

  • 2 oz. Cognac (brandy)
  • 1/2 oz. Cointreau
  • 1/2 oz. fresh lemon juice
  • Twist of lemon for garnish

Mix together in a martini shaker with ice until well chilled. Do not substitute bottled lemon juice. Garnish with a twist of lemon peel. Easy, right?

Like brandy? How about this recipe for Fruited Brandy Punch.

Dirty Vodka Martini

Not really a fan of a Dirty Vodka Martini myself but many people rave about them including some of my friends. I tend to go with the fruitier type of martini like the others on this page, but here is the recipe anyway. It is good to have in your arsenal should your guests request one.

  • 3 oz. vodka
  • 1 oz. Dry Vermouth
  • 1/2 oz. olive juice
  • Green olives for garnish

To make a dirty martini, mix ingredients in a shaker with ice, pour and garnish. The 'Dirty' in the name comes from the olive juice. This recipe makes one Dirty Vodka Martini.

Apple Martini Recipe

Not just for ladies anymore. This Apple Martini Recipe is loved by guys too!

  • 1 ounce vodka
  • 2 ounces Apple Pucker liquor
  • 1 green apple slice
  • 1 maraschino cherry

Fill a cocktail shaker with ice cubes. Pour in vodka and Apple Pucker. Strain into a chilled martini glass and garnish with apple slice and cherry.

If you like Apple Pucker, try the recipe on this page for an Irish Pucker Martini.

Honeydew Martini Recipe

This Honeydew Martini Recipe has become very popular especially at summer gatherings. It is not only beautiful to look at but it tastes crisp and cool on a hot summer day.

Pour the vodka, melon liqueur and Grand Marnier into a cocktail shaker half-filled with cracked ice. Shake well, and strain into a chilled martini glass. Garnish with cherries.

Pear Tree Martini

There are plenty of autumnal cocktails that focus on the most iconic fruit of the season: the apple. From apple brandy drinks like the Jack Rose or the Calvados Sidecar to modern takes on the Appletini, apples drinks are everywhere once the leaves start to change colors. Less common are drinks that celebrate the other essential fall treat: the noble but humble pear. Pear fans will likely appreciate the Pear Tree Martini, which combines spiced pear vodka, elderflower liqueur, lime juice and bitters for a sweet, bright and floral drink that evokes the changing of the season.

The drink’s base is Hangar One spiced pear vodka, though these days that spirit can be difficult, if not impossible, to find in most markets. There are some alternatives, though: Wild Roots Vodka from Portland, Oregon, has a lovely pear vodka, though it lacks the spice of Hangar One’s. France’s Grey Goose La Poire and Skyy Vodka’s Bartlett pear-infused vodka from San Francisco are both good replacements, though they similarly lack the spice element that the recipe calls for.

Absolut has a pear and elderflower vodka, but as the Pear Tree Martini includes elderflower liqueur, it would be redundant and likely too floral. Specifically, the recipe calls for an equal proportion of St-Germain elderflower liqueur. While it’s the most prominent brand of elderflower liqueur—having largely established the style—it does have some competitors. Notably, Giffard and The Bitter Truth each have an elderflower spirit that is comparable in price and quality to St-Germain (though both lack the iconic bottle shape and elaborate design that make St-Germain so recognizable).

Finally, some lime juice balances the drink with much needed acidity, and a dash of Angostura bitters adds complexity and spice without muting the brightness of the cocktail. The result is a juicy and vivid celebration of fall.


Drink & Dish: Spiced Pear Martini

Yesterday was the first official day of Fall – are you as excited as I am?

We still have another few weeks of heat before we get our “Arizona Fall”, but it is supposed to be under 100 all this week! I am hoping and praying it doesn’t get above 100 again until next spring. You see, September is a hard month for me – everywhere else in the country people are rejoicing for fall and enjoying pumpkin everything. Sometimes I just get jealous…there, I said it.

I will however, partake in the deliciousness that is this Spiced Pear Martini. First, I need to state for the record that this – this Spiced Pear Martini – is my favorite drink that I’ve made on Drink & Dish. That’s a pretty tall order since there’s been so many tasty drinks.

There’s just something about this martini that works for me. The combination of sweet pear juice with the warm spiced simple syrup just brings up feelings of fall. I’ll be posting the recipe for the spiced simple syrup later this week – trust me, you’ll want this in your fall recipe repertoire.

I chose to use a vanilla vodka in the martini for a little extra depth of flavor, but just a plain vodka will work in a pinch. Also, one quick note: star anise makes a gorgeous garnish for cocktails – especially if you’re entertaining – but it has a very intense flavor so I’d warn your guests before it gets too close to their lips (especially if they don’t like black licorice).

To go along side my martini Ari made some cute little pumpkin spice latte cheesecake cups. Go look at her pictures, she made them look kinda like mini Starbucks pumpkin spiced lattes. Without further adieu, here’s our latest episode of Drink & Dish!


Kathy’s Notes

  • For this recipe (and to make things easier) I used prickly pear syrup
  • This margarita packs a bit of punch! Shake it with lots of ice for best results
  • You can rim the glasses with either salt or sugar.
  • What else can you make with prickly pear syrup? Think salad dressing! White wine vinegar, finely chopped shallots, prickly pear syrup, extra virgin olive oil, salt and pepper
