2 cups pear brandy — I use Clear Creek Williams Pear
2 cups rosemary syrup*
3/4 cup lemon juice
1/2 cup soda water – or still water
2 bottles chilled Brut Champagne
rosemary sprigs and grapefruit peels for garnish
In a punch bowl combine the pear brandy, lemon juice and rosemary syrup over a large cube of ice. This can be done a little ahead.
When the party starts pour in the Champagne and briefly stir.
Garnish with a long grapefruit peel and rosemary sprigs.
Serve in punch or wine glasses.
3/4 cup rosemary leaves, removed from the stem and coarsley chopped
2 cups boiling water
Steep the rosemary in the boiling water for 45 minutes.
Strain out the rosemary and add equal parts sugar to water – it’ll be a little less than 2 cups.
Stir to dissolve and refrigerate.
