Ingredients

  • 1 cup Freshly pressed Asian pear juice*
  • 1 tsp Lemon juice
  • ¾ cup Honey
  • ¼ cup Sugar
  • 1 (4-inch) sprig fresh rosemary
  • 1 (1-inch) piece fresh ginger, peeled and cut into coins
  • Small grating of fresh nutmeg
  • Ice
  • Soda water

Instructions

  • Combine pear juice, lemon juice, honey, sugar, rosemary, ginger, and nutmeg in a saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a boil, then simmer on low heat for 5 minutes, stirring to dissolve the sugars.
  • Remove from heat and let stand 30 minutes. Strain the syrup through a fine-mesh strainer and discard the solids. Let syrup cool completely.
  • To serve, fill an 8-ounce glass halfway with ice cubes, add 3 tablespoons of syrup, fill with soda water, and stir. Add more syrup for a sweeter or stronger flavor.

Notes

Use the most flavorful Asian pear you can find; Hosui is a consistently sweet variety. Making 1 cup of juice requires about 1 (12-ounce) pear, peeled and cored. If using a juicer, follow manufacturer’s instructions to extract the juice and discard the pulp. If using blender or food processor, puree the pear until smooth, strain through a fine-mesh strainer, and discard the solids. If you wind up with a little less than 1 cup, top it off with water.
