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.
