Expert Tips

This recipe can easily be doubled or tripled to make more than one serving.

Whipped cream-flavored vodka works well with this recipe as well.

If you don’t have a martini shaker, you can certainly just use a pitcher with ice or just use 2 cups of different diameters placed open end to open end to make a mock shaker.

A little lemon juice squeezed over the pear slice will prevent it from browning if you cut it in advance.
