Sparkling Pear and Cranberry Cocktail

 I was looking around for some fabulous drink to serve this weekend, and found this one. I  haven't tried it yet, but doesn't it look lovely?? And, of course, Martha has the coolest glasses!

Sparkling Pear and Cranberry Cocktail

This cocktail is made with icy Moscato d'Asti, which is sweeter than champagne but much lighter than the rich dessert wine also made from Italian moscato grapes. Just the right medium for this fizzy drink, it adds flavor to the silky pear and tart cranberries.



  • 2 tablespoon(s) dry cranberries
  • 1/2 cup(s) organic pear nectar
  • 32 ounce(s) Moscato d'Asti wine
  • 8 small sprigs fresh rosemary

  1. Put cranberries in a small bowl; add 2 tablespoons warm water. Soak until cool, about 15 minutes. Drain, pat dry, and refrigerate until serving.
  2. Divide pear nectar evenly among eight tall champagne glasses. Add cranberries, and then gently pour the Moscato d'Asti into the glasses. Garnish each with a rosemary sprig.
