As I’ve mentioned before, I love fruit-infused water. A few of my favorite combos are basil and blueberries and basically any two fruits with mint. The mint has such a strong flavor that makes anything taste delicious. My new favorite is this refreshing rosemary lemonade that I found on A Beautiful Mess. Now, that I have rosemary right outside my back door, I was excited to give it a shot. It’s easy enough to throw together before work or sip on beside the pool. Next time, I think I’m going to add Club soda to make it a spritzer, but it’s still good.
To make one drink, here’s what you need:
1 large lemon, sliced in half
1 tsp. granulated sugar (or agave nectar)
6-10 rosemary leaves
hot water + ice
To make a pitcher: use 5-7 lemons, a cup of granulated sugar, and 20-30 rosemary leaves. Directions are the same.
First, mix your sugar in hot water together so it will melt. Next, pour over ice. Then squeeze the lemon as much as you can. If you have a juicer, this is much easier. I did it the hard way! Pick out any seeds that fall out. Toss in your rosemary leaves and give it all a stir. Let sit for a couple of minutes to allow the rosemary to infuse in. Enjoy!
