Summer Cocktail Series : Frozen Rosemary Lemonade

So delicious, I named it after myself. Just kidding. Sorta.

But seriously, BEST COCKTAIL EVER. I used a homemade rosemary-infused simple syrup in this drink, which is easy to make and can be saved and refrigerated for a few days if you have any leftover (I didn’t).

Frozen Rosemary Lemonade

1 cup water

1 cup sugar

2 sprigs fresh rosemary (about 2-3 inches long)

4 lemons, peeled and seeded

4 oz citron vodka


For rosemary-infused simple syrup:

In a small saucepan, combine water and sugar and bring to a boil, stirring constantly. When the sugar is dissolved, add one rosemary sprig to mixture and continue to bring to a boil, stirring frequently. Allow to boil until mixture becomes a syrup (about 10 minutes). Remove from heat and allow to cool.

For lemonade:

In a blender, combine lemons, leaves from the other rosemary sprig, 4 oz rosemary-infused simple syrup and 4 oz citron vodka. Fill the blender the rest of the way up with ice and blend until smooth. Now’s the fun part. Taste your lemonade and add more syrup, lemons, vodka or rosemary as you see fit. (Full disclosure: I always end up adding ALL the simple syrup and 2 more ounces of vodka. Because I like my drinks sweet and boozy. Just like my men! How you make yours is completely up to you.)

Serve in mason jars, garnished with lemon slice or rosemary sprig for extra cuteness.
