When it comes to cocktail recipes, I like to keep things simple. While my favorite celebratory drink is a Lemon Drop Martini, this classic go-to beverage was a perfect way to ring in the New Year.
Crisp and lightly fruity, this cocktail was a perfect drink to sip while watching the ball drop with a group of my closest friends. There are plenty of flavored vodka varieties if you are not a fan of pears. Orange, mango and raspberry are a few of my other favorites. Of course, it goes without saying, be sure to select a high-quality brand. It makes all the difference.
Pear Vodka Cocktail
1 ½ oz. pear vodka
sprite or tonic
Fill a rocks glass with ice. Add the pear vodka and fill to the top with Sprite or tonic. Stir lightly with a spoon and squeeze a couple lime wedges on top. Enjoy.
