Pear-tini and the 12 Days of Christmas
So, in the spirit of the 12 days of Christmas poem/song the drink of the week uses pear puree. What else would you do with that crowd at your house and a pear tree in the way? Remember to enjoy in moderation and don't get any silly ideas about Christmas gifts.
from Sandra Lee, Cocktail Time
1.5 oz tequila
1 oz. pear puree* or pear juice
1 oz. fresh lemon juice
3/4 oz. simple syrup
Place all ingredients in a shaker with ice. Shake until very cold. Strain into martini glass. Enjoy.
*To make pear puree, use very ripe pears, core and blend in blender until smooth.
