Pear Spritz Mocktail

This vibrant mocktail features a rosemary infusion and the sweet taste of pears.

Refreshing and elegant, this vibrant mocktail spritz can be enjoyed by every family member. Keeping the peel on the pear creates a stylish stained glass effect. The aromatic Bartlett pear is the perfect choice for this rosemary-infused spritz, but feel free to substitute with any variety of pear that’s conveniently available. Serve alongside our Baked Brie With Honey and Pears or our Pear and Cheese Pairing Board.

Freeze extra Pear Rosemary Syrup in ice cube trays; one frozen cube has enough syrup for one cocktail. Thaw ahead of serving, or add to spritz as is. To create an alcoholic Pear Spritz, add a splash of white wine or rum, or some fizzy Prosecco.
