Does anyone else grow rosemary in their yard? I have a rosemary bush and I love it since it is basically a no effort herb. I absolutely loved the flavor of this cocktail. It was really well balanced and fresh and delicious.
I used the same Tinkerman’s Citrus gin that I used for the Negroni Bianco Bergamotto last week. I will definitely be buying it again as it has great flavor. I also used some berry syrup I had left in my fridge from making this beautiful ombre berry champagne cocktail. The great thing about making your own flavored syrups for drinks is that they last a really long time in the fridge, so you get to make so many drinks with one batch of syrup.
I also added a bit of limoncello to this drink, and used the la croix limoncello sparkling water instead of club soda. The final touch is allowing a sprig of fresh rosemary to marinate in the alcohol for a few hours before serving, to give the fresh hint of rosemary in the drink.
Lemon Berry Gin Fizz with Rosemary
- 2 oz gin
- 2 oz lemon juice
- 2 oz berry syrup
- 1 oz limoncello
- limoncello sparkling water or club soda
- fresh rosemary sprig
- Combine the ingredients except the sparkling water in a mason jar or other container. Shake well and place into fridge or freezer for a few hours to allow the rosemary to flavor the drink. (If placing in the freezer, use a freezer safe container).
- When ready to drink, shake well, remove the rosemary sprig, and pour into a glass full of ice. Top with sparkling water and the rosemary and serve.
