"This is one of those recipes, that I have had for many years, just waiting to be made! I made a similar recipe once but used wine, and never got around to this particular recipe, but I do think the vermouth would pair well with the pears. I think you could cut some really thin strands of the orange and lemon to incorporate with the grated rinds, and then use later for decoration."
