Ingredients
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup vodka
  • 1/4 cup dry vermouth
  • 1/4 cup fresh lime juice (from 3 large limes)
  • Two 8-ounce ripe pears, such as Comice, peeled, stemmed, cored and cut into 1-inch pieces
  • Ice
  • 1/2 unpeeled pear, cored and cut into 1/4-inch-thick slices, for garnish
Directions

In a small saucepan, combine the sugar and 1/2 cup water over medium heat. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat and simmer, stirring occasionally, until the sugar has dissolved, about 5 minutes. Remove the pan from the heat and allow the syrup to cool, about 15 minutes.

In a blender, puree the syrup, vodka, vermouth, lime juice and pears until smooth. For each drink, pour some of the pear mixture into an ice-filled cocktail shaker and shake well. Pour into a chilled martini glass. Garnish with pear slices and serve.
