When celebrating the holidays, there flavors like cranberry, orange, cinnamon, and mint that always seem to pop up in holiday drinks. We wanted to break out of the mold of the ordinary and we think the Rosemary’s Pear might just become your new holiday cocktail! Embracing some of the lesser, but no less delicious holiday flavors, this drink is crisp and spicy, with just the right amount of tart to keep you coming back for more.
Whole Foods Omaha likes to work with local bloggers to promote their products, and when they contacted us to develop some holiday cocktails for their customers (check our our Holiday punch here!) we thought of this one almost immediately. With Pear nectar and rosemary simple syrup blending beautifully with a clean crisp gin and a bit of spicy ginger beer adding warmth, the Rosemary’s Pear might be a better gift for your true love than a partridge in a pear tree!
The Rosemary’s Pear features products that Whole Foods Omaha carries, Black Dot Gin and Fever Tree’s Ginger Beer. The Black Dot Gin is made in Madison, Wisconsin, by a small group of folks who were passionate about making great small batch craft spirits. Distilled in copper pots, Black Dot is a smooth clean gin with hints of lime, cucumber and coriander, and just enough juniper to bring a nice crisp herbal edge to the gin that really complimented the sweetness of the pear and evergreen hints of the rosemary. We used Fever Tree’s ginger beer in this cocktail to add a bit of a tart, spicy bite that keeps the sweetness under control and add a warm depth. All the ingredients can be found at Whole Foods Omaha, and we hope that you will visit them to try out our version of this cocktail!
