Fall is ‘Tini Time

Summer may be over, but fall has its own rewards — martinis!

Here's a recipe for a fruit-based autumn cocktail, the Fresh Pear Martini, courtesy of our friends at Bonefish Grill.

Make this at home, or enjoy one at the restaurant through Nov. 17.

Fresh Pear Martini

2 ounces Absolut Pears

½ ounce St. Germain Elderflower

½ of a local favorite pear

½ ounce simple syrup

Juice of 1 fresh-squeezed lemon

Muddle half of the pear with the simple syrup and fresh-squeezed lemon juice. Add the Absolut Pears and St. Germain and shake ice cold. Add a slice of pear or an edible flower for a fun finishing touch.

Secrets to shake it up:

For a bit more pear flavor, choose your favorite vodka, slice up a few favorite pears, and let infuse for a few days to create your own pear vodka infusion.

If you enjoy a sweeter flavor, add more simple syrup or a sugar rim.

Fun fact: The pear martini has its roots in Hemingway’s haunt, Harry’s Bar in Venice, created by the bar’s founder Guiseppe Cipriani and first served there circa the 1930s.
