Style Me Pretty: French Pear Martini

2012 December 29

With New Years Eve just a few short days away I am thrilled to be sharing my favorite party cocktail on Style Me Pretty today! It’s fresh, sparkling and made with my very favorite elderflower liqueur. I hope you will stop by Style Me Pretty to check out all of the gorgeous photos shot by Joanne and download my recipe. Have a safe and festive New Years Eve!


French Pear Martini

1 ½ oz. St. Germain Elderflower liqueur
1 ½ oz. Pear Vodka
Chilled Champagne
Granulated sugar for the rim
1 lemon, wedged
1 pear, sliced


1. Prepare your garnishes by slicing a lemon into wedges and the pear into rounds.
Tip: To prevent pear from discoloring, squeeze a lemon over cut slices.

2. To prepare martini glasses, run a lemon wedge around the rim anddip into sugar.

3. In a cocktail shaker filled with ice, combine St. Germain and Pear Vodka. Shake vigorously until well chilled.

4. Strain into prepared martini glass and top with champagne.

5. Garnish with a round of pear and a festive stir stick.

6. Sip and enjoy!

    I’m not sure what looks more luscious, you or the martini. You sparkle even without all the gold. Great post and congrats on being featured in Style Me Pretty!
