Organic, Shaken and Stirred: Hip Highballs, Modern Martinis, and Other Totally Green Cocktails by Paul Abercrombie, includes recipes like Lavender Lemon Drop; Pear Tea Martini; Perfect Whiskey Punch; and Pineapple Caipirinha with Sweet Lime Espuma.
This is a classic case of opposites attracting. Green tea, herbaceous and calming, really works with the zingy richness and floral qualities of the pear cider.
Combine the infused vodka and cider in an ice cube-filled cocktail shaker. Shake vigorously, then strain the mixture into a chilled martini glass. Gently drop in the pear slice.
Combine 1 teaspoon organic green tea leaves or 1 tea bag of organic green tea with 1 cup organic vodka and let steep for 2 hours. Strain (or remove the tea bag); the vodka will keep, in an airtight container, in a cool place or the refrigerator for up to 6 months.
