Bosc Pear Rosemary Gin Cocktail

Combining the sweetness and subtle flavor of Bosc pears with the kick of gin and a hint of rosemary to create a cocktail perfect for winter evenings. A special level of creaminess created by egg whites brings this drink to a whole new level for home enjoyment.


Rosemary Syrup

  • 3-4 medium pears
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • ¾ cup water
  • 1 lemon
  • 1 sprig of fresh rosemary (approx. 1 tsp if using dried rosemary)


  • 3 ounces gin
  • 3 ounces elderflower liqueur
  • 0.5 ounces of pear-rosemary syrup
  • 1 cup crushed ice
  • 1 Egg white


  1. Start with simple syrup by dicing about 1 cup of pears (3-4 medium size pears should do) and add to saucepan over medium high heat.
  2. Cook pears for a few minutes until they start to soften.
  3. Add equal parts sugar and water to sauce pan and bring to a boil.
  4. Add lemon juice and sprig of rosemary.
  5. Reduce heat and simmer to desired consistency. Simmering for about 15-20 minutes will get you the consistency of simple syrup.
  6. Allow syrup to cool.
  7. In a cocktail shaker, combine all ingredients and shake vigorously. Pour into glass and garnish with pear and/or rosemary sprig.
  8. Enjoy!
