About the cocktail

Many thanks to iatethewholething.com for the sharing!

Cocktail Prickly Pear Lemon Drop Martini is a wonderful variation of the popular cocktail Dry Martini.

Prickly pears take the perfect Lemon Drop martini to the next level with its slightly tropical and intensely refreshing flavor.

Ingredients

  • 3 Prickly Pears
  • 2 oz Limoncello
  • 2 oz Citrus Vodka
  • 1/2 oz Lemon juice
  • 1 oz Prickly Pear Puree
  • Lemon slices for garnish

Instructions

Cut both ends off the pear. When you look at the cut you made you will see a ring of lighter pink around the fuchsia center of the fruit’s flesh. With a paring knife, cut lengthwise down into the fruit just until the knife reaches the fuchsia center—about ¼”. Use your fingers to pull the skin away from the flesh. Cut the flesh into rough chunks, load them into a small food processor, and puree until it’s as smooth as possible. Dump the puree into a fine mesh sieve set over a large liquid measuring cup, stirring the puree with a spoon to push it through the sieve. Discard the seeds and, if you want a very clarified and pulp-free puree, keep straining to remove more and more pulp. This can be made a few days in advance or even frozen. For one cocktail, add all of the liquids to a cocktail shaker, fill with ice and shake vigorously. Pour into a martini glass and garnish with the curls or slices if desired. For six, pour all of the liquids into a large pitcher, stir to combine and stash in the fridge or freezer until your ready to serve. Shake the cocktails individually (5.5oz per cocktail), straining into each martini glass.
