Pear Ginger Kombucha recipe

The holidays should feel like a breeze.

Or is that just wishful thinking?

Is that why people dart to a tropical island during the holidays to feel an actual warm breeze? I can’t say that I blame them. The holidays can feel frantic, but I have a solution to keep us all from getting tangled like a giant pretzel.

Pear Ginger Kombucha recipe

When I’m hosting a party or impromptu dinner, I always have a simple cocktail ready to pour. With a few ingredients, you can turn someone’s frown upside down. A huge component of making the perfect cocktail is having a simple syrup ready on-hand. The beauty of simple syrup is you can switch out the flavors and make many different kinds of drinks. You’ll be like Kate Middelton’s wardrobe, but of the cocktail world.

For this Pear Ginger Kombucha Fizz I made the best simple syrup using Royal Riviera® Pears and fresh ginger. Pear and ginger are like two peas in a pod. The juicy, slight sweetness from the pears mixed with spicy zing of the ginger adds a depth of flavor to any cocktail. Plus, with a little effervescence from kombucha, you have a sublime cocktail that will make you feel like you are on an island with a cool breeze.
