We know that lemonade isn’t exactly considered the drink of fall. But how about a homemade pear lemonade with rosemary? Refreshing soda actually reminds us of lazy summer afternoons on the beach, on the balcony or on the terrace. Clinking ice cubes in the glass, sweat dripping from our foreheads without us moving. So lemonade is only for bikinis and heat waves? Not for rain, autumn storms and warm cozy sweaters? or is it?
Well, we think drinking soda should be a year-round treat. All you need is tart, juicy lemons mixed with seasonal products from the region and a bit of courage and creativity. I’m sure we can make a suitable lemonade for every season. Let’s start this season with this pear rosemary lemonade.
Pear Rosemary Lemonade
We take whole, fresh and ripe pears. These add a hint of honey flavor and rich texture to this sweet and sour lemonade recipe. I used aromatic Williams pears, which also gives a nice color. The addition of fresh rosemary adds an intense, spicy-tart aroma, another fall favorite of mine. (If you want to try it, you can also try this lemonade with basil, especially Thai basil with an intense aniseed note). Rosemary has a positive effect on low blood pressure, stimulates blood circulation and has a calming effect on the nerves.
