Rosemary Simple Syrup

  • Place the water and sugar in a small saucepan over med-high heat. Once the sugar has dissolved add the rosemary sprigs and allow the mixture to boil for 4-5 minutes. Remove from the heat and cool the syrup with the rosemary sprigs steeping the mixture. Once cool, remove the rosemary and place the syrup in a sealable bottle or jar. The syrup will last in the fridge for several weeks.


  • You can substitute 1-2 tbsp of aquafaba for eggwhite in this cocktail.
  • *The US Department of Agriculture (USDA) considers it safe to use raw eggs if they are pasteurized. Bottom Line: Raw eggs may contain a type of pathogenic bacteria called Salmonella, which can cause food poisoning. However, the risk of an egg being contaminated is quite low. Please proceed at your own risk and decide if you are ok with this. I have never had an issue.
