It’s been a great week here. I hope yours has been just as wonderful. A couple of challenging new projects (which I hope to be blogging about very soon) have kept me on my toes. This afternoon I am eagerly anticipating seeing a very dear friend, who although she lives about 2 minutes away, I have not managed to see all summer. Finally we have weathered baseball, soccer, colds, meetings and all the other usual stuff to carve out some time together. What better time to do a little vintage silver entertaining?
My trip to the Farmer’s Market this morning inspired our drink and afternoon snack 🙂 Fall is very much in the air this morning.
The Brimfield cherries are making another appearance this week…lucky I made 2 batches!
Vintage Silver Entertaining: Poached Pear Prosecco Eye Candy
Poached Pear Prosecco recipe
(inspired by this recipe I found on Pinterest)
1 cup sugar
1 1/2 cups water
3 small or 2 large pears, washed, peeled and sliced
1 bottle Prosecco, well chilled
Begin by combining the sugar and water in a saucepan over a medium heat to make a simple syrup. Stir frequently and notice how the sugar crystals begin to melt into the water. Once the sugar has completely dissolved, turn off the heat and add the pear slices. Remove the saucepan from the heat, cover and leave to steep for 30 minutes.
After the pears have steeped, remove them from the syrup. Finish cooling the syrup, then pour into a lidded container and put in the fridge. It will smell simply divine.
When your guest(s) arrive, pour a small measure of poached pear syrup into the bottom of a glass, then fill with Prosecco. Pop in a Brimfield Cherry and cheers! Enjoy your afternoon.
Do you approve of my stemware choice?
