French Pear Martini

We went out to dinner and a show awhile back, and Ray ordered a "French" pear martini before dinner. Apparently it was also a magic martini, because it vanished before I could even sip have my drink. He quickly ordered a second one and told me I had to reverse engineer a recipe for us to enjoy at home. 

After tasting it, and looking at the ingredients on the menu, it wasn't that difficult, but they are  magic, for sure ! They will magically disappear into your belly, but beware...they are very potent !

French Pear Martini

2 ounces pear flavored vodka
1/2 ounce elderflower liquer
1 ounces pear syrup (just use the juice from canned pears)
Splash of lemon soda, if desired
Fresh pear, thinly sliced for garnish

Place vodka, elderflower liquer and pear syrup in a cocktail shaker. Add ice and shake vigorously. Strain and pour into a chilled martini glass. Top with chilled lemon soda if you want some bubbles. Garnish with fresh pear slice.
