This refreshing summer drink can be made with your choice of Vodka or Gin. It’s the perfect drink to celebrate the summer solstice.
- 2 oz Titos vodka or Hendricks gin
- 1/2 oz rosemary simple syrup
- 4 oz grapefruit juice
- 6 Rosemary sprigs, plus more for garnish
Make the simple syrup:
Combine equal parts sugar and water in a small pot on the stove on high. Stir to dissolve the sugar, being careful not to let it boil. Once water has become clear and all sugar dissolved, turn the heat off and place 6 sprigs of rosemary into pot. Let steep for at least 30 mins or until desired flavor. Once cool, store in container in fridge for up to 10 days.
Make the cocktail:
Combine all ingredients in glass filled with ice. Stir with cocktail mixing spoon. Garnish with rosemary sprig.
Try it with basil or sage simple syrup (instead of rosemary) for a slightly different herbaceous flavor.
