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.
