I truly love fresh and tart beverages! There is just something about citrus and piney rosemary sprigs that makes this cocktail so delicious.

Now, one thing that I truly believe is key for this drink is freshly squeezed citrus. I dislike when drinks get too sweet which can happen so easily if you're using pre-made juice.

Now, let’s talk about rosemary syrup. This is one of those things that you will truly love having in your fridge and you will make time and time again. It is soooo good adding a splash into tonic for a refreshing non-alcoholic beverage. Plus it's a great way to use up your rosemary that is almost past it’s prime.

This is also a great cocktail to make a big batch. Let your guests add there own tonic so it stays nice and fizzy and will make your life a million times easier at your next bbq.
