This week’s drink of the week is all about the forgotten fruit of fall… the pear! The Golden Pear Martini from the Washington Inn’s Wine Bar is a crisp and refreshing treat, reflecting the cool change of weather that comes with the season.
Bartender Robin made this delicious martini for us using Absolut Pear Vodka, fresh pear puree and a splash of Frangelico liqueur. Robin shook all of these ingredients over ice, strained the mixture into a chilled martini glass, and garnished the glass with a slice of ripe pear. The end result was a sweet, juicy flavor with a hint of hazelnut, perfectly completing this fall cocktail.
Come try the Golden Pear Martini yourself at the Washington Inn’s Wine Bar, which also features other signature cocktails, wine flights, specialty burgers and $1 Delaware Bay oysters from 5 to 6 p.m. The Washington Inn and the Wine Bar are now open Fridays and Saturdays at 5 p.m. Come delight your taste buds at this fine dining establishment located in the heart of Cape May’s Historic District!
