Ginger Rosemary Lemonade

Ginger Rosemary Lemonade


Simple Syrup:
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup water
1 (2-inch) piece fresh ginger, peeled and chopped
2 sprigs fresh rosemary
Zest from 2 lemons
1-1/3 cups simple syrup (more or less to taste)
1-1/4 cups fresh lemon juice
2 cups cold water
2 cups sparkling water, chilled
Lemon slices for garnish (optional)
Mint springs for garnish (optional)
  Vodka, whisky, bourbon or gin, to taste (optional)

Cooking Instructions

1. Make the simple syrup: In a heavy saucepan, combine sugar, water, ginger, rosemary and lemon zest. Bring to a boil, then lower heat and let simmer for about 5 minutes or until sugar dissolves completely. Stir occasionally. Remove from heat and let cool for 30 minutes. Strain before using. Makes approximately 1-1/3 cups

2. Make the lemonade: In a large jar or pitcher, combine the simple syrup, lemon juice and cold water. Stir to mix. Chill in refrigerator

3. To serve: When you're ready to serve the lemonade, stir in the sparkling water. Fill glasses with ice. Pour lemonade into glasses and add lemon slices or mint sprigs for garnish. If too sweet, top off the glass with more sparkling water. To make an adult drink, stir in a shot of vodka, whisky, bourbon or gin. Makes 6 servings
