Pear Tea Martini

Cookbook

 

Pear Tea Martini

 

This is a classic case of opposites attracting. Green tea, herbaceous and calming, really works with the zingy richness and floral qualities of the pear cider.

 
  • 2 ounces Green Tea-Infused Organic Vodka
         (recipe follows)
  • 2 ounces organic pear cider
  • 1 slice organic pear, unpeeled

Combine the infused vodka and cider in an ice cube-filled cocktail shaker. Shake vigorously, then strain the mixture into a chilled martini glass. Gently drop in the pear slice.

 

Green Tea-Infused Organic Vodka

Combine 1 teaspoon organic green tea leaves or 1 tea bag of organic green tea with 1 cup organic vodka and let steep for 2 hours. Strain (or remove the tea bag); the vodka will keep, in an airtight container, in a cool place or the refrigerator for up to 6 months.
