Rosemary Lemonade


When it comes to lemonades, I like mine with a touch of added flavor. Two of my favorite additions to lemonade are rosemary and mint.

While mint is extremely refreshing, rosemary adds a late summer (almost fall) edge to this refreshing beverage. In most areas, September is still warm enough for an outdoor barbecue where you will want to serve up a delicious, icy, beverage.

I used this recipe from the A Beautiful Mess blog.


Ingredients:

6 large lemons
Several sprigs of rosemary (you'll need 3 for the cooking process and then some to garnish)
1 cup sugar
6 cups water

Directions:

• Boil the 6 cups of water, sugar and rosemary. Stir the sugar until it is dissolved. Once it has, turn off heat and let mixture sit until cooled.
• Squeeze in the lemons, at any point while it is cooling.
• Pour into a vase, add ice and rosemary garnish. For added beauty, cut lemon wedges for your glasses.


Bon Appetit!

  1. Rosemary lemonade is one of my favorite summertime drinks. It's one of the only things I am going to miss going into Fall, I loved being able to go into my mini backyard + pick a sprig of rosemary to add to my drink. Thanks for the reminder that I need to make this at least one more time before it's too cold!! -Court | lovecourtxoxo.com
