Rosemary Paloma

Allow me to introduce you to my house cocktail, the Rosemary Paloma. It’s a refreshing summer drink featuring my booze of choice: tequila. Besides being delicious and easy to make, what I love about it is that it’s not too sweet. The rosemary simple syrup adds a subtle savory note to this citrusy cocktail.

To make the rosemary simple syrup, please note the name, simple syrup—don’t let the fact that you have to cook something on the stove deter you from making this cocktail! Add 1 cup of sugar and 1 cup of water. Bring to a boil and stir until the sugar is dissolved. Turn off the heat, throw in a few sprigs of rosemary, and let it sit for an hour. That’s it. It will last in your fridge for a few weeks.

If you like a salted rim (yes, please!), simply dip the rim of your class in the grapefruit or lime juice and then into a plate of salt.

Enjoy, my friends!
