Rosemary-Infused Pear Cosmo Recipe
Yield: 2 martinis

4 oz pear vodka
1 oz sweetened lime juice
4 oz pear nectar (this can be found in the juice aisle at many grocery stores, or at specialty food stores)
14 fresh cranberries
2 rosemary sprigs

Set aside 4 cranberries and the top 3” of the rosemary sprigs for garnishing the glasses.

Crush the remaining rosemary leaves and cranberries and place in the bottom of the shaker. Add ice, pear vodka and lime juice, shake and let sit a few minutes

While the drink is resting, get the glasses ready by adding one rosemary sprig and 2 cranberries to each. Add the nectar to the shaker, shake again and pour.

Why use rosemary? It's been known to “alleviate muscle pain, improve memory, boost the immune and circulatory system, and promote hair growth,” according to an article Medical News Today.
