Who says that kids get all the fun...?
With an abundant lemon harvest, I have been experimenting with different ways to use up my fresh and delicious lemons.
I don't always have the 'called-for' ingredients on hand...so I improvise, adapt and overcome!
My latest invention...a Lemon & Pear Martini. Don't knock it until you've tried it.
Similar to a Lemon Drop Vodka Martini, with one small change...oh ya, add the bubbly sweetness after you shake, NOT before.
Vodka ~ 1 1/2 oz.
Lemon Juice ~ 3/4 oz.
Sparkling Pear Juice (Sparkling Cider or Apple Cranberry Cider) ~ 1 oz.
Lemon Twist for Garnish
Pour first three ingredients into a cocktail shaker, shake well. Strain into chilled glass, pour in sparkling juice. Garnish with lemon peel.
