600ml Verjuice
100g caster sugar
4 fresh pears moderately ripe
30g fresh ginger peeled
2 tbspn honey
3 cup ice crushed ice
to serve dried pear or apple optional

METHOD

VERJUICE SYRUP

1 Place 100 millilitres of Verjuice and 100 grams of sugar into a medium size pot and place over a high heat. Bring to the boil, then remove and cool. This syrup will last up to 3 months in the fridge.

2 Cut the pears into quarters and remove the core, then roughly chop into small pieces.

Tip: buy pears at least 3 or 4 days in advance to ripen out of the fridge. If the pears are very green they will be very dry.

3 Place the pears into a blender with the fresh ginger, honey, 500 millilitres of Verjuice, Verjuice syrup and blend until smooth.

4 Half fill 5 glasses with crushed ice, pour over the pear mixture.

5 Serve with dried pear or apple (optional).
