Spiced Pear Syrup

  • 2 pears, cored and chopped into 1 inch pieces
  • 6 tbsp granulated sugar
  • 1 cinnamin stick
  • 1 tbsp chopped crystallized ginger
  • 1 tsp allspice berries
  • 1 1/2 cups water

Double Pear Martini

  • 3 oz vodka
  • 2-3 oz pear syrup, start with less and add more if needed
  • 1 oz pear brandy, or standard brandy
  • ice
  • 1 pear, halved and thinly sliced


Spiced Pear Syrup

  1. Add all the ingredients to a medium saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and let the syrup simmer for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally. Set up a fine mesh strainer over a bowl and pour the syrup into the strainer. Don't press down on the solids! You want a clear (or mostly clear) syrup.
  2. Move the syrup to the refrigerator and chill until cold. You can use it while it is still a little warm if you want though the syrup will melt the ice more as you make the drink. The syrup will last about 2 weeks in the refrigerator.

Double Pear Martini

  1. Combine the vodka, syrup, brandy, and ice in a cocktail shaker. Shake well and divide between two glasses. Fan out two sets of four pear slices each and add them to the martinis. Serve.
