#DOTW: Apples and Pears

One of my favorite fruits is the good old pear, but besides the (very yummy) Pear Martini, there aren’t a lot of cocktails out there that incorporate this delicious fruit. Since we just stepped into autumn, I really wanted to find one, and I did; This cocktail takes a bit of prep in the kitchen. Enjoy!



What you’ll need:

  • 1 1/2 oz Hendrick’s Gin (or quality gin of your choice)
  • 2 tbsp apple/pear mix
  • club soda optional

Remove the cores of 4 ripe pears and 2 green apples. Add them to a blender or food processor to create a puree. Add the juice of one lemon and 4 tbsp honey.

In a Martini shaker mix gin with apple/pear mix. Pour over ice and top off with club soda if desired. Garnish with rosemary twigs.

Hello there, fellow foodies! My name is Erica, I was born and raised in Germany, and moved to the US, New York City to be exact, in July of 1987. I have worked most of my time here in the Big Apple as a bartender, but my true love is food. I cook just about every day, I search for good food everywhere, and pretty much always find it. I don't consider myself a food critic, I don't have the culinary background for that kind of expertise. I do however know good food, good chefs and good restaurants. I report back about my culinary adventures, and I choose to leave out my unsatisfactory experiences. We have enough negativity in our daily lives, I don't want to add to that. All the recipes in my FROM MY KITCHEN and DOTW blogs are cooked and prepared by me. All pictures are taken by me. I don't always eat everything you see in my pictures, but you bet your buns, I do try everything. Last but not least, you should know that I am a huge Top Chef fan. I have never missed an episode of the Bravo TV show. I have at this point visited almost 20 restaurants run by Top Chef contestants, and I'm continuously impressed by their skill, drive and passion. So I will continue to seek them out, and I hope you join me in my journey!
