WHEN LIFE HANDS YOU...


Mealy pears.......

Make a pear martini!

I found myself with one of those "bargain" trays of ripe pears from Costco this week, and they looked (key work: looked) so tasty!
NOT.
The kids would take a bite and I'd find the remainder in a baggie in the fridge.
The chickens were getting whole pears in their scrap bowl.
Until a light bulb went off this evening!

PEARY RIPE MARTINI

1 really ripe pear, peeled and core removed
1-2 oz. good vodka (tho I hardly think one would notice if it was Popov!)
splash of Rose's sweetened limeade
1/2 cup or so of crushed ice

Throw it all in the blender for a few seconds
Pour into chilled martini glass (Cyn ALWAYS has several in the freezer for inspirations such as this)
Drizzle with a bit of Alize (or not...I just thought it looked pretty!)

DRINK RESPONSIBLY!
Pin It!
