Cocktail: Rosemary Bourbon Citrus Fizz

Monday, September 1, 2014 2 1

Happy Labour Day! I can’t believe it’s already the 1st of September – and already the weather feels more like Fall! There’s a cool breeze in the air and I’m wearing a cozy sweater.

This Rosemary Bourbon cocktail is perfect for ushering in Fall. The hint of Rosemary adds a lovely herb flavour while not overpowering the delicate lemon and bourbon flavours.

Ingredients
  1. 3 shots Bourbon
  2. 2 shots fresh Lemon juice
  3. 1 shot Maple Syrup
  4. Top with sparkling water
  5. Rosemary sprigs
Instructions
  1. In a martini shaker, add the Bourbon, lemon juice, Maple Syrup, and lots of ice. Grind a few leaves from the Rosemary Sprig in a mortar and pestle and add to the shaker.
  2. Shake vigorously for approx 15 seconds.
  3. Strain the mixture into a short tumbler, such as an old fashioned glass. Add ice, and top with a splash of sparkling water. Garnish with a Rosemary sprig.
Notes
  1. Alternatively, you can leave out the sparkling water, but it's a bit strong for me without, so I like adding a splash!

    Wow, I am definitely serving this at our next dinner party! I love that there aren’t any obscure ingredients in it, I could make one without even needed a trip to the store.
