How to Make Haskapa Pear Mocktails + Video

It exciting for me to share with you How to Make Haskapa Pear Mocktails – versatile for non-drinkers & drinkers alike.

How to Make Haskapa Pear Mocktails - cookingwithkimberly.comThis is a non-alcoholic beverage to refresh you when you need a lift, though you could add alcohol as you desire to make this a strictly adult drink.

The subtle addition of pear flavor with the gorgeously sweet & tangy haskap juice is an exciting one that will satisfy the young & the old.

Haskapa Pear Mocktails:

Oven-Baked Spiced Pear & Rhubarb with Verjus in Stoneware Ramekins - cookingwithkimberly.comFor dessert, I made Oven-Baked Spiced Pear & Rhubarb with Verjus in Stoneware Ramekins, and I wanted to make use of the leftover pear poaching liquid, so that serves as the base for these mocktails, which was 3 parts water to 1 part sugar, and I poached one pear in the liquid.

Web Chef Review: Haskapa Juice - cookingwithkimberly.comThen, I am also using a lovely product called Haskapa Juice, which is deliciously sweet and tangy, and made with haskap berries, under the Haskapa name.

The haskap plant originated in Russia, but since it has been brought to Canada, most of the Canadian provinces are able to grow this plant which produces large, oval, dark purplish berries with deep crimson flesh. You can get more information on this product online:

Harvest Barn Country Markets - harvestbarn.caI found this Haskapa Juice at my local Harvest Barn Country Market in Niagara-on-the-Lake, which is one of their two locations, with the other location being in St. Catharines, in southern Ontario. They carry a variety of high quality unique products, as well as offering superbly fresh produce from within a 100 mile radius, wherever possible. Stop in some time and check them out.

Tips:

  • Arcobaleno High Ball Glasses in Purple - shop.cookingwithkimberly.comYou may want to serve these beverages over ice.
  • You could garnish by hanging a piece of fruit over the edge of each glass or prior to pouring any liquid into the glasses, you could rub the rims with lemon and then roll the rims in sugar.

The ingredients & instructions are listed below the video for measurements & directions. Please enjoy this webisode of Cooking with Kimberly:

Ingredients:

  • haskap berries - haskapa.com10 oz of pear poaching liquid
  • 6 oz of haskap juice – I used Haskapa Juice.

Instructions:

  1. Into two chilled, tall, fluted glasses, pour about 3 oz of cold Haskapa Juice into each glass.
  2. Follow by adding in about 6 oz of the cold pear poaching liquid to each glass, and give them a good stir.

I find this drink to be very delicious and refreshing and I would love to serve it to guests.

You could serve this drink warm, for a nice cold weather night cap with vodka or gin.

Some other ideas I have considered making, using similar ingredients are Peartinis or Spiced Haskapa Pear Punch.
