Asian Pear and Rosemary Spritz

Asian Pear and Rosemary Spritz – Alcohol-Free Cool Down

What actually takes this Asian Pear and Rosemary Spritz to the next level is the infusion of rosemary, ginger, and nutmeg. After the soda’s initial sweetness, traces of these herbs and spices linger on the tongue and throat – not so much as different seasonings but just a mellow warmth. We believe it makes a delightful, non-alcoholic option for a party.

*serves 4-6

  • 2-3 Asian pears, juiced (yield: about 2 cups of juice- you can use a blender to make your juice)

Directions

  1. Add the Asian pear juice, honey, sugar, rosemary sprig, and nutmeg to a medium saucepan and bring the mixture to a boil over medium heat.

  3. Remove the saucepan from the heat and let the mixture stand for 30 minutes before straining it through a fine-mesh strainer.
  4. Throw away the solids and transfer the syrup to a lidded container, then allow it to cool completely. (or transfer to the refrigerator until ready to use)
