Rosemary Pear Mocktail

After months of drinking seltzer mixed with ginger ale and lots of Olipop, I’ve been really wanting a good cocktail. I’m only a few weeks out from a dirty martini, but in the meantime, I’ve been experimenting with mocktail recipes at home that I can easily add liquor to for Anel to enjoy as a regular cocktail too.

This rosemary pear mocktail is by far the best one we’ve tried! It’s so yummy, satisfying, and refreshing. Plus it was fun to make and made me feel fancy.

Just add vodka or gin to make it into a real cocktail!
