A Few Tips
1. To make homemade ginger-pear syrup:
Follow the simple recipe for homemade ginger-pear syrup. All you need is a sauce pan, a potato masher, 1 pear, ½ cup of grated ginger, 2 tablespoons of sugar and some cheese cloth to strain the syrup. Or you can use my preferred tool, a nut bag. Nut bags are extra fine mesh bags used in making nut milks. It will ensure you get every drop of syrup from the mixture.
2. To make the cocktail garnish
Simply slice some pear and thinly slice into sections. Put 3 slices together and pierce through the bottom third with a cocktail pin and evenly fan them out. Cut and wash a small sprig of baby’s breath and place it gently on top of the pear slices.
