Ingredients

  • 300 g (3 ) ripe pears, seeded, cut into large chunks
  • 60 ml (¼ cup) honey
  • 240 ml (1 cup) water
  • 6 Tablespoons pomegranate arils, 1 tbsp. per glass
  • 1,080 ml (36 fluidounces) rosé, or sparkling wine or water],6 fl. oz. per glass

Directions

  1. Place pears, honey, and water into a small saucepot set over medium heat. Bring to a simmer and let cook for 10 to 12 minutes or until pears are softened and liquid has reduced by half.
  2. Let mixture cool slightly, then add to the Vitamix container and secure the lid.
  3. Start the blender on its lowest speed, then quickly increase to its highest speed. Blend for 30 to 45 seconds or until smooth.
  4. Allow to cool completely and place mixture into a squeeze bottle. Alternatively, set aside in a small bowl.
  5. Squeeze or carefully scoop 1/4 cup (60ml) pear purée into the bottom of each champagne flute.
  6. Add 1 tablespoon of pomegranate arils to each, and top each with 6 fluid ounces (180ml) of sparkling liquid, stirring gently to incorporate before serving.

Chef's Notes

The rosé in this recipe can easily be swapped for sparkling water to make a delicious mocktail.
