Rosemary Gin Fizz

CocktailsCandace KaruComment


  • 1/4 cup (2 ounces) gin
  • 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon fresh lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon rosemary simple syrup
  • 1/3 cup club soda
  • lemon and lime slices, and rosemary sprigs for garnish

Rosemary Simple Syrup

Add sugar and water in a small saucepan, stir and bring to a boil. Stir continuously until sugar dissolves.
Remove from the heat. Add rosemary to the simple syrup and let steep for about an hour. Discard rosemary sprig and refrigerate until you use it. Simple syrup can be kept refrigerated for up to a month.


Fill a cocktail shaker with ice. Add gin, lemon and lime juice, and rosemary simple syrup. Strain into a glass filled with ice (I like to use the ‘dirty rocks’ from the shaker). Add club soda. Make it pretty with a lemon or lime slice and s festive sprig of rosemary.

Mocktail Version

For a refreshing, non-alcoholic version of this cocktail, substitute lemonade for the gin. Pink lemonade is even better, because it makes the drinks so darned pretty!
