Herbal Fusion: Rosemary-Lemon Drop

drink

Here’s a quick recipe for a Friday cocktail. You will need:

1/2 cup water
1/2 cup sugar
1 lemon, zest peeled off
1 big sprig rosemary + 1 small sprig
2 oz vodka (or 3 oz, depending on your mood)
ice

Add the sugar, your strips of lemon peel, rosemary and water in a small pot. Bring to a boil and let sugar dissolve while stirring. Remove from heat and let cool. Dig out lemon and rosemary and discard.

pot

Combine 1/2 of your syrup (or a little less, depending on how sweet you wannt it), the juice of 1/2 a lemon, the vodka and some ice. Mix and strain out into a martini glass. See, you have enough lemon/rosemary syrup to make yourself another. Excellent. Garnish with a small piece of rosemary. I found this really nice as the scent of rosemary was very strong every time I took a sip!
