Ginger Pear Martini

As we come out of hibernation and back into our cocktail kick here’s an original TAC recipe for a Ginger Pear Martini. Playing with ingredients I started with 1 oz of both lemon juice and simple syrup. It was good, tart and sweet but it masked the pear and ginger flavors, it seemed right as a shooter but not a cocktail. Reducing the measurements to .5 oz of each was the answer, it allows for the mellow flavor of pear with a bite of ginger at the finish. Next time I make this I’ll omit the sugar but rim the glass with sugared ginger for a touch of added sweetness.
