Whether you’re looking for a fall themed cocktail, something to serve at parties, or a sophisticated drink to enjoy for any occasion, this Ginger Pear Vodka Martini will set the tone. It’s an elegant drink with just the right amount of sweetness, blended with fruity pear flavors and a bit of ginger spice.
Martini cocktails are a favorite of mine. They often require only a few ingredients, and the range of flavor combinations are endless. While I enjoy traditional straight-up vodka martinis, more elaborate ones like this ginger pear martini add a variety to your cocktail menu.
Copper colors are seen everywhere in nature, especially during fall season, but this isn’t normally associated with cocktail recipes. For this Ginger Pear Vodka Martini, it plays a critical role. In the same way barrels and aging affect the flavor profiles of wines, spirits can benefit from this process.
For a celebrated rich silky mouthfeel and exceptionally smooth finish, I used Absolut Elyx Vodka. It’s crafted using a vintage copper still from 1921, which is hand operated to make a unique spirit. Elyx is a single estate, copper crafted, vodka that is the luxury expression of Absolut. Elyx achieves maximum contact with copper by using sacrificial copper, a process is called copper catalyzation.
It’s not just about creating a quality vodka. They also donate a weeks worth of safe drinking water to those in need through a partnership with Water for People through every bottle of Elyx sold in the USA.

Tips for making the best Ginger Pear Vodka Martini:
- Use a quality vodka, such as Elyx
- Fill cocktail shaker with ice and add liquid at room temperature. This melts the ice a bit for a smoother taste and texture
- Shake vigorously until outside is frosted, forming ice crystals and additional texture within the cocktail. While some may prefer cocktails stirred, shaking works best for chilling and balancing sweeter, fruit-based drinks
