Ingredients

Meyer Lemon Rosemary Syrup:

  • 2 cups water
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 sprigs rosemary
  • 2 thick strips Meyer lemon zest

Gin Fizz:

  • 4 oz gin
  • 3 oz fresh-squeezed Meyer lemon juice
  • 1 1/2 oz Meyer Lemon Rosemary Simple Syrup
  • Club soda, to top off
  • Lemon slices, for garnish
  • Rosemary sprigs, for garnish

Instructions

Make the Syrup:

  1. In a small saucepan set over medium-low heat, combine water, sugar, rosemary sprigs and lemon zest.
  2. Bring the syrup to a simmer, and cook for 2 minutes or until the sugar is completely dissolved. Remove from heat and let steep for 15 minutes. Strain the syrup into a glass container and chill until ready to serve (it’ll keep for up to 1 week).

Shake Up the Cocktails:

  1. In a cocktail shaker filled with ice, combine the gin, lemon juice and simple syrup. Shake vigorously for about 15 seconds.
  2. Strain into two chilled highball glasses filled with ice, and top each one off with a splash of club soda. Garnish with lemon slice and rosemary sprig.
