One of my goals on my winter bucket list was to try out a new recipe. I saw this recipe in the holiday edition of Southern Living and just had to try it.
- 1/4 gin (I used Tanqueray)
- 2 tablespoons Simple Syrup (see recipe below)
- 2 tablespoons lemon juice
- club soda
- garnish: Rosemary sprig
Simple Syrup Recipe:
Combine 1 cup of sugar and 1 cup of water in a saucepan. Cook over medium heat, stirring contantly, until sugar dissolves. Bring to a boil. Boil 15 minutes or until reduced to 3/4 cup.
Place gin, Simple Syrup, lemon juice, and ice in a cocktail shaker. Cover with lid and shake until thoroughly chilled. Strain into a highball glass filled with ice cubes and finish with club soda. Garnish with rosemary sprig.
