This sparkling cocktail is elegant enough to serve at a dinner party, yet light enough to enjoy at a brunch get together.
By the time Christmas rolls around, I am already feeling stuffed from Thanksgiving and all the comfort food we’ve been enjoying in the crisp cool weather.
Holiday cocktails always seem to include something rich and creamy. As much as I love to sip on some spiked egg nog, I desire something light and fresh to complement all the special Christmas recipes I make this time of year.Pear vodka is so crisp on its own, but when paired with fresh rosemary, the scent becomes so alluring and inviting. I love any cocktail with fresh herbs. It adds such a special touch to the palette and the eye.
Topped with sweet bubbly champagne, this cocktail will stun your guests with its elegance.
Once the holidays pass, I just call this Pear Tree. It’s too good not to enjoy beyond Christmas.
