2 ounces cranberry juice
1/2 ounce freshly squeezed lime juice
1/2 ounce rosemary simple syrup (recipe below)
Fresh cranberries for garnish and to add to the drink
Fresh Freeman Herbs Organic Rosemary sprigs for garnish
Granulated sugar (for the rim of the glass)
(optional: 1 1/2 ounces of vodka)
Rosemary Simple Syrup (to be prepared in advance):
1 cup water
1 cup sugar
3-4 sprigs fresh Freeman Herbs Organic Rosemary
Rosemary Simple Syrup:
In a saucepan, combine all ingredients and let simmer over medium heat, stirring until the sugar dissolves.
Let simmer for a few minutes to infuse, remove from heat, and let cool completely.
Strain into a bottle to remove the sprigs of rosemary.
On a small plate, pour a small amount of granulated sugar. Take a slice of lime and run it around the rim of your serving glass. Dip the rim of the glass into the sugar, coating it evenly.
Fill a glass with a handful of fresh cranberries and ice cubes.
In the glass, combine the cranberry juice, sparkling water/club soda, lime juice, and rosemary simple syrup and stir well to combine. (Optional: add the vodka at this step and ensure to mix well)
Skewer a few fresh cranberries onto a cocktail pick or a skewer.
Gentle 'clap' a sprig of rosemary in your hands to release its aroma and add to your drink, placing the skewer of cranberries on top of the glass.
Serve and Enjoy!
