My friend Michele and I came up with this drink while on a 2 hour lay-over between a wedding and its reception. It was trial and error and we got good and smashed by the time we got to the reception. Good thing too, because the so called apple martinis in the restaurant were nauseating candy sweet drinks. Our concoction on the other hand came out great. Pear has nice mellow flavor and the the elderberry adds just a touch of floweryness.
PS. Elderberry flower concentrate might be hard to find – unless you have an IKEA in your neighborhood.
