Thanksgiving 2016 Drink Recipes
November 23, 2016

One of the greatest American traditions, Thanksgiving is a chance to show our gratitude for all that we have and share the occasion with family and friends while enjoying food and drink. When planning this year’s Thanksgiving menu, consider these delicious Thanksgiving beverage recipes courtesy of Syfo:

Pear Rosemary Cocktail



  • 6 to 10 pears
  • 12-16 fresh rosemary sprigs
    • 4 cups of vodka
    • ½ cup of sugar
  • 1 ½ cups of pear nectar
  • 4 cups of Syfo Peach- Pear Sparkling Water





To prepare pear infused vodka, place pears in a large 48 ounce jar to fill. Pour vodka over the pears to fill, then seal the jar. Allow the pear- vodka mix to sit at room temperature for about 2 weeks (Hint: if infusing your own vodka isn’t your style, pear vodka such as Absolut can be found at most stores).

To make your simple syrup, heat sugar and 1 cup of water in a saucepan over medium to high heat, and stir until the sugar has dissolved. Add rosemary springs and remove from heat. Allow the mixture to cool for 30 minutes. Remove the rosemary sprigs and continue to cool the mixture completely.

Fill glasses with ice. Combine 2 ounces of vodka, 1 ounce (2 tablespoons) of simple syrup, and 1.5 ounces of pear nectar. Top with ½ cup of Syfo Peach- Pear Sparkling Water and garnish with rosemary springs.
