  • 1 stem of rosemary about 1 Tbsp rosemary leaves
  • 6 oz lemonade
  • 4 oz bourbon
  • 1 egg white
  • 5-6 dashes of classic bitters


  • Prepare the Rosemary Infused Bourbon:
  • Strip the leaves from the rosemary stem and place them in a small jar or glass.
  • Pour the bourbon over the rosemary leaves.
  • Allow the bourbon to infuse for at least 30 minutes. For a stronger rosemary flavor, you can let it infuse for up to 24 hours in the refrigerator.
  • Mix the Cocktail:
  • In a cocktail shaker, combine the rosemary-infused bourbon (strained), lemonade, egg white, and bitters.
  • Dry shake (shake without ice) vigorously for about 15 seconds. This helps to create a frothy texture from the egg white.
  • Add Ice and Shake Again:
  • Add a handful of ice to the shaker.
  • Shake again vigorously until the mixture is well chilled, about another 15 seconds.
  • Serve:
  • Strain the mixture into a chilled glass. You can use a fine mesh strainer to ensure no ice or rosemary bits make it into the glass.
  • Optionally, garnish with a small sprig of rosemary or a twist of lemon peel to enhance the presentation.
  • Enjoy:
  • Your Rosemary Bourbon Lemonade is ready! The herbal notes of the rosemary, combined with the richness of bourbon and the tanginess of lemonade, create a delightful spring cocktail.
