Known as the Pearfect Times, this is the cocktail of the Year of En Route magazine. It comes from the bar of Yew Restaurant + Bar at Four Seasons Hotel Vancouver. It is a mix of lemon juice, pear purée, cane sugar, Absolut Pear and Beafeater gin. I will try to see if it best my all time favorite.
The best pear martini I tasted was from the bar of Kimonos restaurant and lounge at Walt Disney World Swan. I do not know if they are still making it but it is not on their online menu. I recommend the sushi at Kimonos. We ate there three nights out of seven.
