Refreshing martini with fruity vodkas
The Martini is no stranger to variations: don’t hesitate to try it with fruity vodkas.
Walk into any bar and you can order a Martini to your liking…
The drink is a kind of blank canvas for your tastes, and even Julia Child had her preferences. The celebrity chef preferred the Upside-Down Martini, a drink in which the vermouth has more weight than the gin, with a lemony finish.
Now, more than ever, it seems that Martinis are in luck. Variations of the cocktail range from the dirty martini, which incorporates olives, to the caffeinated Martini, which has become all the rage. In fact, CNN Business declared 2022 the year of the Espresso Martini, a coffee-flavored cocktail popping up in bars and restaurants alike.
But flavor combinations aren’t limited to espresso. Better Homes and Gardens predicts the pistachio martini will be the breakout cocktail of 2023, and the drink is exactly as sweet as it sounds.
Some pistachio martini recipes incorporate almond and orange liqueur as well as Irish cream whiskey, while others rely on vanilla vodka, pistachio syrup, half-and-half, and banana cream and crème de menthe.
Keep these martini recipes on your radar, but add another to the mix, one that offers a refreshing, fruity version of the classic cocktail.

A pear vodka martini is a combination worth pairing
Swap espresso for pears in this refreshing – and simple – cocktail. Cocktails Cafe recommends using pear vodka for a fruity and simple version of the classic Martini.
To make the most basic version of the drink, you’ll obviously need pear vodka, as well as simple syrup and lemon juice.
As for pear vodka, there are certain brands, but any kind of pear vodka should do the trick. Once you experiment with the basic cocktail-or if you’re feeling creative from the start-you can let the recipe evolve with other ingredients.
Try mixing in some elderflower liqueur for an herbaceous spring drink. Or try other liqueurs, bitters and spices. Cocktails Cafe recommends cardamom and mint.
Once you’ve chosen your ingredients, combine them with ice in a cocktail shaker and strain, according to Cocktails Cafe. How you serve it is up to you, although you can’t go wrong with a traditional Martini glass (bonus points if you garnish it with pear slices).
Don’t drink and drive. Enjoy responsibly.
