Cranberry Ginger Cocktail

A festive holiday cocktail made up of cognac, cranberry and pear juices, fresh ginger, and rosemary. 

2 cups fresh cranberries
4 pears, seeded and cubed
1 inch piece of ginger
1 standard shot of cognac per drink
Rosemary simple syrup to taste 
Club soda

In a blender, puree cranberries, pears, and ginger. Add a little water if necessary. Strain the liquid and get as much as you can. For each cocktail, fill glass with ice. Add in the cognac and 1 or 2 tablespoons of the rosemary simple syrup, depending on how sweet you like your cockatil. Fill glass ¾ full with cranberry pear juice. Top with club soda. Garnish with fresh rosemary and a cranberry.

For the rosemary simple syrup, combine ½ cup organic cane sugar with ¼ cup water and 2 sprigs of fresh rosemary. Bring to a boil and cook till sugar dissolves. Turn off heat. Remove rosemary sprigs and let cool completely.
