Rosemary, Lemon and Gin Cocktail
1 c gin (we used Ryan & Wood, Inc. Distilleries Knockabout Gin)
1/3 c fresh lemon juice
1/4 c Rosemary Simple Syrup
2 rosemary sprigs for garnish
Rosemary Simple Syrup
1 c granulated sugar
1 c water
5 sprigs fresh rosemary
Add the sugar and water to a small saucepan and bring to medium heat. Cook, while stirring, until the sugar dissolves and small bubbles begin to form. Turn off the heat, add the rosemary sprigs, and let steep for 1 hour. Let cool.
Fill a shaker with ice. Add the gin, lemon juice and rosemary simple syrup and shake vigorously. Strain into two glasses filled with ice and a rosemary sprig. Serves 2.
