Check out this herbal rosemary simple syrup, that is perfect in cocktails and mocktails!



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. Classic 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 Mint Infused Simple Syrup. 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, 1960 Black Tea with Lemon, make sorbet and even use in baking! It is a very versatile ingredient. Here is our rosemary simple syrup for you to try!






Can Simple Syrups go bad?

They can get moldy if they sit too long. We encourage you to store it in the fridge in a Bormioli Rocco Swing Bottles but for no more than one to two weeks. We actually have a whole shelf of simple syrups in our fridge at any given time!
