Throughout the month of November, RA Sushi in Downtown San Diego will be serving “The Perfect Pear” of seasonal cocktails. Infused with the crisp flavors of fall, the Pear Martini and Asian Pear Smash will be available for a limited time for $8 each.
The Pear Martini tastes like a bite of fresh, ripe pear, with an added kick. The Asian Pear Smash is a lightly spiced and refreshing cocktail bursting with fall fruit flavors. Mix up one of these cocktails for a Thanksgiving feast, or stop in to RA Sushi at 474 Broadway for one of these delicious drinks from Nov. 1-30.
RA was kind enough to share the recipes with Sedimentality, so we are passing them on to you. Enjoy! And remember: during the month of October, RA also has a sushi roll and wine special, and 100% of the profits benefit breast cancer research. I’ll drink to that!
