Wondering what to serve at your Christmas festivities this year? Or at your winter wedding? How about something luscious and bubbly like this gorgeous Pear Rum Blush from Maggie Battista – equal parts yummy and lovely! Photos by Heidi from White Loft Studio.

From Maggie: “Part rum punch and part sparkling cocktail, this Pear Rum Blush is refreshing and festive. The flavor is fruity with a kick, reminiscent of those amazing sherbet punches of our youth that took center stage at every holiday gathering. Omit the booze and add club soda for a fruity non-alcoholic soda.”


Pear Rum Blush
Serves 1

• 1 1/2-ounce pear juice
• 3/4-ounce dark rum
• 1-tablespoon cherry grenadine
• 1 tablespoon lemon juice
• 1 ounce Prosecco
• Pear slice and cherry for garnish (optional)

1. Pour the pear juice, rum, grenadine and lemon juice into a cocktail shaker with ice.
2. Shake until the outside of the vessel is ice cold. Pour entire contents of shaker into a highball glass.
3. Gently pour (or float) Prosecco into the glass and garnish with pear slice and cherry.

      I have made this several times over since shooting it with maggie…loved by everybody that I serve it to, and I’ve also played around with adding different spices when I shake it – I have added nutmeg, but cinnamon is the favorite thus far :)

      Pears might just be my favorite fruit and pairing them with prosecco, rum, cherry, and lemon just takes the fruit to a whole new delicious level — not to mention elegant and beautiful!
