With pear vodka and a splash of limoncello, this Italian pear martini from Brandywine Prime is a must when summer ends and autumn arrives.

As the summer sun sinks over the horizon, Michael Majewski, managing partner of Brandywine Prime in Chadds Ford, suggests sipping this.

Italian Pear Martini


1 ½ ounces of Absolut pear vodka
½ ounce of pear, pureed (fresh or frozen)
1 ounce of Limoncello
Splash of sweet-and-sour mix


Shake well on ice and strain into a martini glass.

And if you truly enjoy being a cocktail chef, you can make your own pear vodka. Simply find a large, lidded glass container and add six ripe pears cut into chunks. Pour in a bottle of vodka, cover it and refrigerate for a week (or until your patience runs out), shaking occasionally. Strain and rebottle.
