French Pear Martini

Glass Guide- Cocktail Glass

The French Pear Martini combines to great new spirits, pear-infused vodka and St. Germain. While each was available previously via homemade pear vodka and non-alcoholic elderflower cordial, the recent additions to the commercial market make this cocktail easier than ever. This is an elegant, flavorful, very "springy" cocktail. Serving it in a cocktail glass is a little unusual considering Champagne is added, but it's a nice touch and makes a stunning impression.
