I am a big fan of cocktails and especially like drinking them on festive occasions such as Christmas and New Year’s Eve. They usually look pretty and they add a little extra to a party, especially when they are homemade. This pear and rosemary cocktail is not too difficult to make if you have the right equipment.
The recipe is as follows:
- 50 ml Vodka
- 25 ml pear puree
- 10 ml simple syrup
- 10 ml fresh lemon juice
- 2 sprigs of fresh rosemary
Gently muddle the rosemary sprigs in the base of a shaker. Add the remaining ingredients and shake with ice. Strain into a chilled martini glass and garnish with a sprig of fresh rosemary.
I personally love the interesting herby flavour the rosemary adds. And this cocktail is not too sweet, so it suits (almost) all tastes.
