The holidays are officially over but I’m still celebrating hence the Rosemary Pear Sparkler. It’s a slightly savory and sweet champagne cocktail that’s perfect for celebrating or just because it’s Wednesday.
The holidays always sneak up on me. By the time I got into the rhythm of the season, and developed some great recipes, it was over. I just ran out of time to post them all. I’ve got a Coco-Matcha Truffle recipe coming up soon too.
The pear and syrup should be enough for an entire bottle of champagne or prosecco. The syrup will definitely get you through a bottle but you may want an extra pear if they are small.
