To make a Prickly Pears Martini, combine vodka, prickly pears syrup, orange liqueur and lemon juice, shake and serve. An unusual serve that will bewitch your guests.
  • Pear Tree Martini: This autumn-in-a-glass pear martini variation adds a dash of bitters to the pear vodka and elderflower liqueur for an extra tangy flavour. Speaking of autumn, check THIS out.
  • Appletini: This isn’t a pear-flavoured cocktail, but apples sit right next to pears as autumn’s symbolic fruits.  The Appletini is a modern classic introduced in the 1990s, usually identified as the cool kid’s drink. It combines vodka, Calvados, granny smith juice, lemon juice and simple syrup and it’s delicious all year long. 

If you like fruity Martinis, you should also try the French Martini, the Lemon Drop Martini, the Key Lime Martini and the Pornstar Martini.
