Simple Syrups are so Easy to Make
The easiest way to up your cocktail game and create a fabulous craft cocktail is with an infused simple syrup. A lot of cocktails call for a simple syrup and one of the easiest ways to change up a cocktail is to change up your simple syrup.
Ways to use Rosemary Simple Syrup
While my rosemary pretty much grows year round, it’s resiny flavor always makes me think of fall and winter. It’s such an earthy herb.
If you’re wondering what you could do with your simple syrup, I have some suggestions. These are all cocktails that you could add a little rosemary simple syrup to:
- Apple Martini
- Whiskey Sour
- French 75
- Mai Tai
- Old Fashion
- Vodka Collins
And, that’s just the tip of the iceberg! It’s also great stirred into lemonade or sparkling water for a non alcoholic drink! Feel free to suggest some more cocktail pairings in the comments! I also love pairing it with Homemade Limoncello for a refreshing herby, lemony cocktail!
It’s so easy to make this, you first bring sugar and water to a boil. While you can use any granulated sugar, I like superfine sugar because it dissolves so easily. I use this India Tree Brand, but this C&H Pure Cane Quick Dissolve Superfine would work also. Let it boil for for 3 minutes then stir in honey, I like to use Raw & Unfiltered Honey. Add the rosemary and let it steep as the sugar mixture cools. Remove the rosemary and store in the fridge! So easy!!
I found this recipe in Donna Hay’s August/September 2015 magazine.
