Why we like it: The flavor trio of banana, pear, and lemon scores high marks in our book.
Combine 8 ounces (1 cup) vodka, 4 ounces (½ cup) banana liqueur, 4 ounces (½ cup) pear nectar, and ½ ounce (1 tablespoon) fresh lemon juice in a cocktail shaker or pitcher. Pour into 4 ice-filled glasses, and garnish with fresh edible flowers. Makes 4 servings.
