Units Scale
  • 1 cup Water, filtered
  • 1 cup Honey
  • 1 Bosc Pear, chopped
  • 1 Rosemary Sprig
  • 22 1/2 oz Empress 1908 Gin

  • 1 oz Fresh Lemon Juice (equivalent to one large lemon)

  1. Pear-Rosemary Simple Syrup: In a small pot, warm the water to almost boiling. Remove from heat and stir in the honey until fully dissolved. Add the pear and rosemary and give it a gentle stir. Cover and let steep until it is completely cool. (I like to let it steep for at least an hour). Discard the pear and rosemary.
  2. Empress Pear-Rosemary Gin Cocktail: Once ready to serve, add the ice, Empress Gin, ginger beer, simple syrup and lemon juice and stir to combine.
  3. Garnish: Top with a pear slice and rosemary sprig. Drink and enjoy!
