The Essence of Fall Martini
The star of the show in this martini is the St. George Spiced Pear Liqueur, which is absolutely delicious! Just open a bottle, take a smell, and I have no doubt you’ll agree with me before you even take a sip. It’s one of my favorite liqueurs that instantly transforms you to the feel of fall, which is why I call this martini “Essence of Fall.” Right when you open the bottle you pickup on the warm flavors of cinnamon, clove, and pear that just conger up visions of leaves dropping and footballs flying. This luscious cordial could easily be consumed neat or on the rocks, but a martini elevates it to the next level. I always associate football with the start of fall, which must be the reason I had to breakout this martini recipe out! I hope you enjoy, and I’ve turned you on to a new favorite liqueur for your home bar and parties! Cheers!Print

- Category: Martini
- Method: Mixology
- Cuisine: Cocktails
- 3 ounces Absolut Vodka
- 3 1/2 ounces St. George Spiced Pear Liqueur
- 3/4 ounces Lemon Juice (I often use bottled lemon juice for convenience, but you could also use fresh squeezed)
- 1 ounces to 1 1/4 ounces Simple Syrup (Depending on how sweet you want the cocktail. I use Rock Candy Syrup by Fee Brother’s for convenience, but you can also use regular simple syrup)
- Fresh pear slices for garnish (I love fresh fruit soaked in alcohol. One of the finer things in life! You could also use canned pears if you need to for convenience. I definitely prefer fresh pears!)
- Cinnamon sticks for garnish (Make sure they are long enough to stick out of the top of the martini glass)
Combine the Vodka, St. George Spiced Pear Liqueur, Lemon Juice, and Simple Syrup in a mixing tin. Add ice to mixing tin. Shake for 30 seconds until the tin is cold. Strain into a chilled martini glass. Garnish with fresh sliced pears or a cinnamon stick or get super fancy and do both! Cheers!
These martini’s are potent. For most people this recipe will make 2 drinks. On my Martini Friday’s with my huge martini glass this is one martini for me! Hopefully no judgement. If this martini is too potent you can always cut the recipe in half again. Please enjoy these drinks responsibly. Please only forward this recipe on to people that are 21 and older.
