Fresh Pear Cocktail

The philosophy at Rouge Tomate, a health-mindful restaurant with locations in New York and Brussels, is guided by seasonal ingredients and bright flavors. Beverage Director Pascaline Lepeltier shares this delicious cocktail:

Shred 1 medium Bosc pear; place pulp on several layers of cheesecloth. Gather edges of cheesecloth together; squeeze over a glass measuring cup to yield 1/3 cup juice. Discard solids. Combine pear juice, 2 tablespoons citrus-infused vodka, 1 tablespoon pomegranate juice, 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice, and 1 tablespoon agave syrup (or sugar syrup) in a martini shaker with ice; shake. Strain about 3 tablespoons vodka mixture into each of 2 martini glasses. Top each serving with 1½ tablespoons hard apple cider or cidre doux. Garnish with pear slices. Yield: 2 servings.
