October was just one of those sort of months for my family…where every small thing that could happen, did happen. Nothing super dramatic, but enough to seriously cut into my cooking and blogging time. The kids were both sick (for what seems like the 12th time this fall), my husband was working extra long hours & we hardly saw him, and then the multiple minor annoyances of life came blasting through. All of these events combined together to give me a semi-permanent eye twitch, and a strong urge to drink! Well, to a drink pear vodka martini, that is!
To the rescue comes this lovely Pear Vodka Martini. Perfect for soothing those frayed nerves! Delicious pear nectar is mixed with a delicious Grey Goose pear-infused vodka, some simple syrup, and a squirt of fresh, tart, lemon juice. Simple, sweet, and fruity, this is a martini to sip. Perfect for cool nights or as a juicy cocktail for Thanksgiving dinner. I know I enjoy having one… or three!
