I have a jar of Luxardo maraschino cherries sitting in my fridge. I went out of my way to mix a cocktail just so I could use these little delights. Yep, I created this Cherry Vanilla Vodka Cocktail just to eat maraschino cherries. The syrup is so fragrant with vanilla and tart from the cherries. Once you have the syrup together, the drink is a simple. It’s serious just the syrup, sparkling water and vodka. Oh, and of course the glorious maraschino cherry.

Rosemary Pear Sparkler

The holidays are officially over but I’m still celebrating hence the Rosemary Pear Sparkler. It’s a slightly savory and sweet champagne cocktail that’s perfect for celebrating or just because it’s Wednesday.

The holidays always sneak up on me. By the time I got into the rhythm of the season, and developed some great recipes, it was over. I just ran out of time to post them all. I’ve got a Coco-Matcha Truffle recipe coming up soon too.

The pear and syrup should be enough for an entire bottle of champagne or prosecco. The syrup will definitely get you through a bottle but you may want an extra pear if they are small.
