Gin & rosemary

We had a few really warm days around here these past few weeks and nothing was more refreshing than a cool gin cocktail after work on Saturday. Since we grow rosemary in the backyard, I decided to use it to make simple syrup and added it as a garnish. 

Gin & rosemary cocktail

- a shot & a half of gin 
- two tablespoons simple syrup (recipe below)
- three or four splashes of bitters, gently swirled in glass
- seltzer water
- a sprig of rosemary

Rosemary simple syrup
- a cup of sugar
- a cup of water
- five sprigs of rosemary

Place all three ingredients in a small saucepan and bring to a boil over medium high heat. Boil approximately one minute, remove from heat and let stand until cold enough to store in a glass container. Strain and serve over gin and ice. Add seltzer water, splashes of bitters and drink slowly.
