I actually forgot the lemon slices at the cookie swap, but I liked the dimension it added when I went to try and take another photo the following day, so I'm including it in the recipe.
Rosemary Ginger Fizz
Recipe by Shannon
for the rosemary ginger simple syrup:
1/2c evaporated cane juice (or granulated sugar)
3 sprigs of rosemary
2" knob of ginger (or more), peeled and sliced into thick coins
Combine all ingredients in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium heat, then lower the temperature a simmer for a few minutes. Remove from heat and let steep 10min. Strain out the rosemary and ginger, then transfer to a jar and refrigerate.
to prepare the drink:
rosemary ginger simple syrup
lemons, cut into wedges or slices
sugared cranberries, for garnish if desired
Add seltzer to a glass with ice, then mix in your desired amount of rosemary ginger simple syrup and a squeeze of lemon juice. Stir and taste, then adjust as you see fit. For the wine glasses shown below, I was using ~2T simple syrup and the juice from 1 slice of lemon.
This could certainly be made alcoholic, if you're into that kind of thing ;) Which alcohol would you pair with this?
