- lemon juice
- ice cubes
- Pear for garnish
How to Make Pear Martinis
- Add the vodka, syrup, lemon juice and ice to a cocktail shaker and shake for 30-45 seconds.

How Do I Make Simple Syrup?
Add 1 cup water and 1 cup sugar to a small pot. Bring to a boil, stirring until the sugar is dissolved. Remove from heat and let cool. Store up to a week in a mason jar.
What if I Can’t Find Pear Vodka?
If you cannot find pear vodka in the stores, you can always make your own pear-infused vodka. Add sliced pear to a mason jar and fill with regular vodka, such as Tito’s. Store for 4-5 days and then remove the pears.
What Kind of Pears Should I Use?
If you are making your own pear infused vodka, use Green Anjou pears, the most common pears you find in the grocery store. You can also used Bartlett pears for a sweeter taste.
