Lemon Rosemary Syrup


This one I just got completely lucky with- like, so lucky that I didn't do any of the work and I didn't even plan on taking pictures- I just walked into the kitchen at the right moment where the amazing J was creating this gem to use in drinks, and I snapped a few pics! Let me show you...

Just boil your ingredients together, then let cool...
And strain well into a vessel!

Lemon Rosemary Syrup
-3 lemons, cut into 1/8ths, squeeze juice into water, then add peel as well
-4 medium sprigs rosemary, leaves only
-1/2 cup sugar
-1(+ maybe a little more) cup water
Heat all ingredients together over medium, boil for 5-6 minutes. Reduce heat and simmer for another 5-8 minutes, watching to make sure the water level does not get too low.
Cool slightly, then strain.
Just add water to make Rosemary Lemonade!

Then J used the syrup to make these drinks for him and his brother- alcoholic Rosemary Lemonade!!

So make some syrup, and see what you can make with it- it could flavor any number of things- this is all about getting creative! And it's super easy, to boot.

(thanks J!)
Savor it!
love, rue
