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