This lemonade has been kicked up a notch with the addition of rosemary simple syrup, sparkling water, and a dash of cream. The result is an herby, fizzy, tangy, yet creamy drink that is perfect for the upcoming summer weather.
In a small saucepan, combine water and sugar, and stir over medium high heat until sugar has melted.
1 cup water, 1 cup sugar
When the sugar-water comes to a simmer, add the rosemary springs and allow to simmer for about a minute.
4 sprigs fresh rosemary
Remove from heat and let steep for about thirty minutes.
In a cup, add ice, 1 cup of sparkling water, 1/4 cup of rosemary syrup, 2T of lemon juice, and 2T cream. Stir to combine, and drink!Tip: You may want to make these in individual glasses, so you can adjust the sweetness/tartness/creaminess to your liking. The amounts above are a guideline and you should adjust it to taste.
4 cups sparkling water (club soda), 1/2 cup fresh squeezed lemon juice, ice cubes, 1/2 cup heavy cream
