Pear Mocktail Recipe

22 August 2023 –

It’s the perfect pear—sweet maple, herby rosemary, and sparkling water make this Pear Mocktail the sophisticated drink of late summer.

Fruit and mocktails are meant to be, and pears are no exception. In fact, we’d venture to say they’re underrated in the world of drinks. Naturally sweet with a honeylike taste, they lend themselves well to a sparkling glass around the dinner table. Presented in a clear glass, this Pear Mocktail recipe is frothy and golden—a sophisticated sidekick to your undoubtedly well-thought-out tablescape.

Keeping pace with the elegance of its presentation, this Pear Mocktail is sweet, but not overpoweringly so. A ripe pear is nearly enough on its own, but a touch of maple adds subtle notes of caramel that warm the drink through. This recipe calls for bartlett pears, but any tender pear will do (d’anjous, red pears, you name it). Our only stipulation is that you use the freshest pear you can find, and don’t negotiate on 100% real maple syrup. A sage-green sprig of rosemary finishes the color palette, but also rounds out the flavor with an aromatic, herby finale.


Time: 5 minutes | Yields: 3 drinks

1 bartlett pear, plus additional for serving
2 tablespoons maple syrup
Pinch kosher salt
18-24 ounces sparkling water
3 sprigs rosemary



Core the bartlett pear and add the fruit to a blender along with the maple syrup and pinch of salt. Blend until completely smooth. Divide the puree among 3 tumbler glasses, using about 3 tablespoons of puree each.


Top each glass with 6-8 ounces sparkling water (depending on dilution preference). Stir to combine, then add the rosemary sprig and optionally include a slice of pear in each glass. Sip and enjoy immediately
