It’s a classic! And with good reason. It’s so refreshing and simple and well, addicting! I find myself making big pitchers of this citrusy beverage on the constant!
Last week I thought it would be fun to try a few pitchers that had funky, unexpected flavors mixed in, and this rosemary version was definitely my favorite!
The rosemary gets incorporated by making a super easy simple syrup that gets mixed into the lemonade. I made a batch for a last minute gathering a few days ago, and it was a major HIT! You can even garnish the cups with little sprigs of rosemary if you want to get all cute about it.
Happy beginning of the week, friends! I hope it’s an awesome one for you. xo
Rosemary Lemonade – Baker by Nature
1 1/2 cups fresh squeezed lemon juice
4 cups water
3 large sprigs fresh rosemary
1 cups sugar
lots of ice, lemon wedges, and rosemary sprigs for serving
In a large pot combine 1 cup of water, sugar, and rosemary. Set pot over medium heat, and bring to a simmer, stirring frequently. Let the mixture simmer on very low heat for about 5 minutes, then remove from heat and discard the rosemary. Let the mixture cool to room temperature. Once cooled, combine simple syrup mixture with the fresh lemon juice, and remaining water, stir to combine. At this point you can taste the lemonade and adjust the water/sugar if you feel like it needs more. Pour into glasses with ice, and drink!
