Rosemary Pear Sparkler
- for the rosemary simple syrup -
Equal parts water and sugar ( 1 cup water: 1 cup sugar)
1 fresh rosemary sprig
- for the drink -
Champagne or Prosecco
2 pears, peeled and pureed
Fresh rosemary sprigs for garnish
First, make your rosemary simple syrup by combining the water and sugar in a saucepan and bringing to a boil. Stir until the sugar dissolves. Remove from heat, add the rosemary sprig and let the mixture steep for about 2 hours. Then, remove the rosemary and cool in the refrigerator until ready to use. Consider bottling the syrup in a glass bottle for easy use and storage. You can save, sealed and in the refrigerator (as if you'll have leftovers 😉) for up to a week.
Mix up your cocktails immediately before serving. When you're ready, add 1 ounce of your syrup and 1 ounce of the pear puree to a champagne glass. Top off the glass with your bubbly, and then add a sprig of rosemary for garnish. Stir gently with a custom stir stick. Toast and enjoy with a festive custom printed cocktail napkin!
