It’s no secret that I love a good tipple. Whether it be a random concoction of whatever you can find or something a little more put together with a couple of garnishes. And I love creating my own little concoctions. So, with the cooler evenings creeping in I thought I’d share this easy peasy rosemary and ginger cocktail that’s going to keep you warm on the inside out. It’s perfect for a cosy Sunday evening pre roast dinner or around a fire pit with friends.
If you like ginger or spices I’d highly recommend Kings Ginger (this was gifted to me previously but not for the intention of this blog post – all opinions are my own). It’s a ginger liqueur and has a really nice spicey taste with a hint of lemon. It’s perfect for the autumn winter months, however I use in drink throughout the year as it’s so refreshing. You could even add it to lattes or hot chocolates in the Winter to make a boozy pick-me-up! Now, onto the recipe…
ROSEMARY & GINGER COCKTAIL
- 45ml ginger liqueur (alternatively you could use a mix of gin and ginger syrup instead)
- 2 drops bitters
- 25ml lime juice
- 25ml rosemary simple syrup
- cloudy lemonade to fill (you could also use sparkling water, tonic water or ginger beer instead)
It’s simple! Just pop some ice into the glass and then put all the liquids except the cloudy lemonade or fizz of choice into a shaker and shake it up. Then just strain into the glass, add the cloudy lemonade to fill and garnish with a slice of orange or lemon and a bit of rosemary and voila. These measurements are for one drink, so simply double to make two and so on.
