Rosemary Simple Syrup
With all of the cocktails and lemonades I have been making recently, I keep coming into an obstacle – that I don’t have the right flavored simple syrup on hand to finish off the drink the right way. To deal with that, I have been making loads of new simple syrup flavors and it has been so much fun. To make this rosemary simple syrup, I used sugar, water, and fresh rosemary. That’s it! This simple syrup does take longer than some others because the rosemary has to steep for 20 minutes but it is worth it. You can use it in so many drink recipes and it is great to just have on hand to toss into things for a little extra excitement.
The first recipe I made with it was a rosemary lemonade that had such a nice flavor to it from the rosemary. Adding a touch of honey to it really topped it off perfectly and made it a refreshing summer drink!
