Rosemary Gin Fizz Cocktail

Add an herbal spin to the classic gin fizz cocktail with fresh rosemary.

Rosemary Gin Fizz Cocktail Recipe

Remember when we shared our Classic Gin Fizz Cocktail Recipe with you? Well, we’ve put a little spin on it. Gin, fresh rosemary, and fresh lemon team up to make the classic recipe even betterIf you like the classic, you’ll love this Rosemary Gin Fizz.

To add the essence of rosemary to our gin fizz, we add a few sprigs to our homemade simple syrup.

Rosemary Simple Syrup

Since the syrup is warm, the oils from the fresh rosemary release and infuse the syrup. You can do this with any herb – basil is great one to try.

    Delightfully elegant and refreshing drink. Perfectly balanced recipe. I used a french gin with crisp citrus notes. thank you for sharing your recipe with me.

    I tried to sub the lemon juice for yuzu juice. It came out really nice! Adds a smoother, floral note.

    Amazing! These were a huge hit on Thanksgiving at our house. They will also be my house cocktail tomorrow for the Super Bowl. I follow the recipe with no alterations.

    I have made this recipe twice now, once for a cocktail party, and last night for a dinner party. Rave reviews all around both times. The second time I made it, I made a small modification which I am going to do from now on. I left the rosemary to steep all day in the simple syrup and added long curls of lemon zest, from one lemon, to steep as well. It was really nice. I love your recipe and it is the perfect cocktail for an apperitif. Thank you!

    I tried a rosemary gin fizz the other day. The good thing is that the gin has herbal notes which are brought out by the addition of a little fresh herb!

    fabulous…and lovely photos too!
