  • Small saucepan


Rosemary Simple Syrup

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • A few fresh rosemary sprigs

Blood Orange-Rosemary Gin and Tonic

  • 2 ounces gin
  • ½ ounce freshly squeezed lime juice about ½ lime
  • 4 ounces freshly squeezed blood orange juice
  • 1 ounce rosemary simple syrup
  • 4 ounces tonic water


  • Prepare the rosemary simple syrup by simmering the sugar, water and rosemary in a small saucepan over medium-high heat. Stir frequently to dissolve the sugar. As soon as the sugar dissolves, remove from heat.
  • If you have some time, let the syrup steep for an hour for an extra punch of rosemary. But if you don't have time, it's tasty right off the stove. Just give the syrup a few minutes to cool.
  • Fill highball glass with desired amount of ice. Pour in the gin, tonic water, lime juice, blood orange juice and simple syrup. Give it a stir. Serving with a sprig of rosemary never hurt anyone.
