Have a drink!

Pear, Rosemary & Lemongrass Cocktail
4 glasses 
5 pears (medium size)
1/3 fennel3 sprigs rosemary1 inch fresh ginger, more or less according to taste1 stalk lemongrass, chopped and crusheda pinch nutmeg, ground
2 pinches ground vanilla
1/2 – 1 cup sparkling water or soda (start with 1/2 cup, add more to taste)
Run pears, fennel, 2 sprigs rosemary and ginger in a juicer.
Pour the juice into a small saucepan over medium heat, add lemongrass, nutmeg and vanilla. Bring to boil, turn down the heat and let simmer for 15 minutes, or until thickened. Allow to cool completely before straining. Pass through a fine sieve.
Crush the ice in a high speed blender.
Place the thickened juice in a pitcher or (cocktail) shaker, add soda water and stir to combine.
Fill the cocktail glasses with ice and pour over the juice and soda mixture. Garnish with sliced pears and fresh rosemary. Enjoy!

(If you'd like a more grown-up version, replace the soda with sparkling wine, or add a splash of light rum)
