Nashi Hendricks Martini ( Japanese Pear Martini )
Just a couple of weeks before the ” Nashi ” season comes to an end ,we would like to introduce a nice fruits martini , simple and very rich in taste .
Nashi or also known as Japanese Pear is a common fruit in Japan and some countries around Asia. it has a high water content and a crisp , grainy texture .
Nashi Martini ( Japanese Pear Martini )
– Hendricks Gin – 45 ml
– Nashi fresh Juice – 45 ml
– Cordial Elderflower – 5 ml
We tried to do as simple and fresh as possible since at the moment the Nashi’s in the Japanese market are very juice and sweet with a lot of fragance .
First step is making the fresh Nashi juice . Take a half medium pelled Nashi and cut it in big pieces . Put into a shaker and muddle it until you extract the juice . Try to strain with a thin net strainer to take the grainy texture .
Second step . Pour the Hendricks , Nashi Juice and Cordial Elderflower into a shaker . Filled the shaker with good ice . Shake it well and pour into a chilled cocktail glass . Garnish with a Nashi peel .
Ps : It depends how sweet is you Japanese Pear , you may only need to use just a few drops of cordial elderflower . Using a good gin with a floral taste makes a big difference in the cocktail . Try to make the Nashi juice just before you make the martini .
Cheers until the Nashi season last !!! Bar Trench
