The perfect one

Those of you who know me well enough know that I am a perfectionist.

After long and arduous experimentation, trials and mistakes I believe I am ready to say that I have devised an almost perfect Sugared Candy Pear Martini.

You will need:

1 - 1,5 oz Absolute Pear

0.5 - 1 oz Limocello or other Lemon Liqueur

1.5 - 2 oz sweet and sour mix

1 - 2 tsp freshly squeezed lemon or key lime juice.

Use more or less vodka, limoncello and sweet and sour to regulate candyness of the drink. Generally, more vodka/less limoncello - means less candy.
Put all the ingredients in the shaker with ice and shake vigorously at least 10 times. This will chill the drink through liquid - ice contact.
Serve with a slice of a pear or sugared lemon in a sugar rimmed glass.
