We’ve put an herbal spin on the classic gin fizz cocktail. Gin, fresh rosemary and lemon team up to make the classic recipe even better.
2 ounces (1/4 cup) gin
1/2 ounce (1 tablespoon) fresh lemon juice
1/2 ounce (1 tablespoon) rosemary simple syrup (recipe below)
3 ounces (1/3 cup) club soda
1 lemon slice, for glass
1 rosemary sprig, for glass
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup water
1 rosemary sprig
Shake gin, lemon juice and rosemary simple syrup in a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Strain into a glass filled with ice. Add club soda. Garnish with lemon slice and rosemary sprig.
Combine sugar and water in a small saucepan then bring to a boil. Cook, while stirring, until the sugar dissolves. Remove pan from the heat, add rosemary, and then let steep for 1 hour. Discard the rosemary sprig.
