Add Seasonal Spice
Pears are an underutilized fruit in many autumn recipes in favor of apples; but their flavor is every bit as enjoyable and their juice adds a velvety texture to drinks with a sweet, mellow flavor. Look for an unfiltered pear juice with no added sugar that has a hazy color rather than clear. You can also juice fresh, ripe pears using an electronic juicer.
Honey adds a hint of sweetness to the spritzer and helps balance the spice of the ginger. Use raw honey for the least processed honey.
A sprig of rosemary not only looks festive but adds an herby aroma to each sip. Fresh thyme or a cinnamon stick can be substituted as well.
This drink isn’t just for the holidays, sip it after a heavy meal or anytime you experience digestive upset to help soothe your tummy.
