Raise your hand if you like to try new drinks.

It’s no secret that I love a good martini as you can see here and here.  I love to try new cocktails, but they can’t be too sweet, too strong, include anything coconut flavored….or be blue in color.  

I know, I’m high maintenance, but I blame it on Kevin. When you have a husband who is a master mixologist, it’s hard to find drinks that measure up to his standard. Kevin pours a good martini. And this Ginger-Pear Martini recipe is one of the best we have. It’s still one of our most popular cocktails!

What makes a Ginger Pear Martini so good?

It checks a lot of boxes. It is smooth, crisp and refreshing. And not too sweet. In my eyes, that makes a perfect cocktail.

What ingredients do I need for this Ginger Pear Martini Recipe?

The list is short so make sure your ingredients are the best! It starts with pear flavored vodka, a little ginger liqueur, some freshly squeezed lemon juice, and simple syrup.

Assembly is simple. Shake it up with ice, pour in a martini glass, add a garnish of lemon and enjoy. How is that for easy and delicious?

How to make a good martini at home

  • It all starts with the ingredients. Start with high-quality vodka and always use freshly squeezed lemon juice. Save the bottled stuff for another time. The difference is huge.
  • Use the right equipment! This shaker is one of our favorites and is a workhorse in our home bar.
  • Serve it in a pretty glass. Everything tastes better when it looks good. 


 Tip: Hosting a party? Let your guests play bartender and set up a DIY Martini Bar. I promise it will be a huge hit!

    This was a wonderful drink that I will never forget – except that I served myself too many that wonderful night in 2011 and may have forgotten a few things. Yet, I was able to remember to keep making myself another… and another… and another. This is truly a winner!! You have a lot to live up to in 2012 – better get started. 🙂 Let me know if you need any help.

    I stumbled upon this recipe and made it tonight for date night. Wow! It is so good! I love ginger and have been trying to find a drink that isn’t a Moscow mule with ginger in it, but not overwhelmingly ginger and here it is. This may be my new go to drink. Thanks for sharing!

    Lacking a ginger liqueur, do you think using a ginger infused simple syrup might work?

    • Avatar

      Absolutely! I would omit the plain simple syrup if you are making that substitution or do 1/2 ounce ginger simple syrup and 1/2 ounce plain. Let me know how it turns out!
