Rosemary Gin Fizz

This weekend, it’s the Kentucky Derby and Cinco de Mayo.  Two great reasons to gather friends and serve up some delicious cocktails.  I just bought a rosemary plant for my window herb garden, so it was only natural I snip a few sprigs for cocktails.  Not just for garnish, but to make rosemary simple syrup.  Simple syrup is just that – simple.  Never buy it in the store because it’s full of preservatives and is often made with high fructose corn syrup.  Just combine equal parts sugar and water and boil gently, stirring often, until sugar is dissolved.  To infuse it, I just tossed in a few sprigs of rosemary to the mixture. Once cool, place it in a tall glass with ice. Pour gin and lemon juice and stir.  Top it off with club soda, add your garnish, and serve!
