The Pearfection

The Pearfection is slightly sweet, slightly sour and all around refreshing. It’s the perfect patio drink.

1 3/4 ounce of Absolut Pear Vodka 

1 3/4 ounce Elderflower Liqueur 

Juice from 1/2 lemon 

Shake vigorously and strain into a chilled martini glass.





Blackberry Sage Martini

A delicious combination of blackberry, notes of citrus and a hint of sage.

Blackberry liqueur muddled with fresh blackberries and sage

2 ounces citrus vodka 

1 ounce Cointreau 

1 ounce lemon juice

Shake and strain into a martini glass. Garnished with a lemon wheel and sage.




Main Street Bistro & Martini Lounge

Blood Orange Martini

A fantastic blend of tart and sweet. Just like the fruit, this drink is the deliciousness of an orange with a kick.

1 1/2 ounces Vodka

3/4 ounce Solerno Blood Orange Liqueur

1/4 ounces Monin Blood Orange Syrup

1 1/2 ounces Lemon Sour

Mix ingredients, shake with ice and strain into a martini glass. Garnish with an orange wheel.
