Sparkling Wine Cocktail With Rosemary and Pear

Rosemary Pear Sparkler

Choosing champagne or sparkling wine to celebrate the holiday season is a nice low-calorie alternative to spirits or beer, but when I'm craving a cocktail, a plain glass of Prosecco doesn't always do the trick.

If you're looking for a nice cocktail to enjoy this holiday season, try my refreshing rosemary pear sparkler. It makes a great aperitif, and the flavors of pear and rosemary really tie together the feelings of Fall.

Hi Chloe! Sorry I took so long in getting back to you. For this recipe I bought 100% pear juice from my grocer. Pear juice can sometimes be hard to find but I usually have luck getting it from a health food store or a Mexican grocery store. Thanks!

This sounds really good! This might be a dumb question (I'm not much of a cook), but do you get the pear juice by from actual fresh pears, or do you just buy the juice from a grocery store? If you start with actual pears, do you need a juicer?
