"Absolut Pears"

Cannot wait to try this!!! Inspired by the tender anjou pear. mmmmm, my favorite!! We have called several places trying to get a bottle, and finally found someone who had it in stock! Sweetie will be home from work around 9:45, with me in wait! My first idea was mixing it with vanilla liquor, and looking at the website, they suggest the same thing!
Edit: I think it would be good with pomegranate liqueur too! And probably a lot of other things! The website has some really good drink recipes regardless! Countdown to 9:45!!!

9:39 Y-U-M!!!! Like biting into a fresh pear! LOVE IT!

Unfortunatly I can't give the recipe for the drink I had because I didn't make it or see it being made, but I can tell you I've had it and very much enjoyed it. I think the drink was made with Diet Sprite and maybe something else, but I'm really not sure.

What about a peartini.....with a tiny tiny droplet of goldschlager??? Use a cinnamon stick as a swizzle.

Oh Shannon - this is a good one! I "Absolut"ly love it! The vodka is a light green color, very pretty. I keep mine in the freezer. The first two times I shook it in the martini shaker and drank it like that. The third time I had it on ice - again wonderful!

I never thought of mixing it with pomegranite liqueur - I have a bottle of PAMA-which is fabulous. Maybe pick up a bottle of that with the Absolut - sounds fantastic. Can't wait to hear what you think.

Oh, and the scent is wonderful! My mom, who does not drink at all, smelled it and loved it. Make sure you sniff before you drink!

I loved the smell too! I am think of replacing my Victoria Secret Pear Glace splash with this! I enjoyed smelling it as much as tasting! It is so true to the taste and smell of a pear. Last night I mixed it with vanilla vodka and a splash of sprite. I thought of this today too: jello shots with the white grape or cranberry jello! It is the first flavor released this year by Absolut, and looks like it is getting rave reviews! It definitely has my vote! My fiance is sure I have lost my mind... Cheers!
