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.
Pear Tea Martini
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.
- 2 ounces Green Tea-Infused Organic Vodka
- 2 ounces organic pear cider
- 1 slice organic pear, unpeeled
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.
Green Tea-Infused Organic Vodka
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.
