Sparkling Pear and Ginger Cocktail

Although I don’t drink often, I love a fresh cocktail every now and then. This sparkling pear and ginger cocktail is perfect for Thursday’s holiday… it’s refreshing, light and full of delicious flavors. I love the way the pear syrup combines with the apple cider vinegar, thyme and ginger to create a complex tasting (but easy!) recipe. Top it with a pour of your favorite champagne or prosecco for a festive touch and enjoy. Cheers!
