• 2 ounces of Grey Goose Vodka (you can also use Absolut or Stoli vodkas)
• .75 ounces of pear infused simply syrup
• 1 small piece, about a square inch, of fresh honeycomb
• 1 Amber Martini Glass from

To Make the Simple Syrup:
Dissolve 2 cups of sugar into 1 cup of water in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil, turn heat to low and add a coarsely chopped Anjou pear to the mixture. Let it simmer for 5 minutes – very slow on a low temperature.  Remove from heat, strain, and allow to cool. This will stay good in your refrigerator forever and is the basis for many cocktails.

To Make the Martini:

Fill a cocktail shaker with crushed ice and add the vodka and pear-infused simple syrup. Shake vigorously for at least 20 seconds. The extra shaking will actually help create a great consistency in the cocktail. Pour into the amber martini glass. Add the honeycomb, which the honey will slowly drip of out of, sweetening the cocktail as it dissolves and changing the color of the drink. The silky honey also a smooth texture to the cocktail.
