  • 2 ounces gin
  • 1 ounce lime juice
  • 1 ounce rosemary simple syrup (see notes, or video, for instructions)
  • 1 lime wedge or disc for garnish


  • Combine the liquids
  • Chill with ice and strain into a chilled glass or rocks glass.


To make rosemary simple syrup: combine ½ cup sugar and ½ cup water and ¼ cup chopped rosemary in a small sauce pan over high heat (the video says ½ cup, which will also work, but I use less). Bring it to a boil, stir and remove from the heat. Let it cool, then strain. this will keep refrigerated for 1 to 2 weeks.
