In the course of making cocktails, we try to make a lot of our own ingredients from scratch. One of our favorites to make is a simple syrup. Simple syrup can be an integral part of a cocktail, by adding sweetness and flavor to make the drink just right. We have made a lot of simple syrups out of herbs, fruit and other sugars. Our favorites though, are the herbal ones. They add that extra ingredient to our drinks that we enjoy, such as sage, rosemary and other spices. This rosemary simple syrup is something we add to a lot of our drinks, as both of us like rosemary very much. We have used it in such cocktails as Rosemary’s Pear, The French Tart and the Rio Rose. Simple syrups can be infused with anything you can think of, so use your imagination and come up with your own unique flavors!

Simple syrups don’t just have to be used in cocktails, they can also be used in mocktails, kid’s drinks, teas, make sorbet and even use in baking! It is a very versatile ingredient. Here is our rosemary simple syrup for you to try!

  1. My husband makes simple syrup but without the rosemary. Now I’ll have to recommend your recipe that includes this beautiful fragrant spice!

  2. Oh my goodness. I adore rosemary and I will definitely have to make this! I won’t have a kitchen for a while since my husband’s job is requiring us to move around and live out of hotels for the next few years, but once I settle down, I will have to give this a try. Thank you!

  3. I started out doing half the recipe (1 cup water, 1 cup sugar, 2 rosemary). It wasn’t quite right so I added half a cup of sugar and 1 more rosemary, let it sit covered for an hour and it was good, but the rosemary wasn’t as strong as I had hoped.
    Probably will do 1 cup water, 1.5 cup sugar, 4 rosemary next time!! 🙂

    1. That recipe is definitely rich simple syrup (when you add more sugar than water), but it sounds as if you are on the right track. Feel free to add as much rosemary as you want and keep the sugar/water ratio the same, and that should give you a better rosemary flavor.
