Rosemary Lemonade

I found this recipe in Real Simple several years ago and kept it handy. It’s a great summer drink!

  • 2/3  cup sugar
  • 6  2/3  cup water
  • 7 sprigs fresh rosemary
  • 1  1/4  cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 lemon, thinly sliced
  • 8 shots vodka, chilled

Combine sugar and 2/3 cup water in a small saucepan and bring to a boil to make a simple syrup. Add 3 sprigs rosemary and let steep for 15 minutes. Chill (the longer it sits, the better)

Combine the syrup, lemon juice, 6 cups water, and lemon slices in a large pitcher. Bruise 4 rosemary sprigs by bashing them around a little with a wooden spoon on a cutting board and then add to pitcher.

Makes 8 servings.
