Tasting Notes

Rosemary Simple Syrup has a distinct flavor that mixes the aromatic, pine-like flavor of rosemary with the sweet, well-known basis of sugar. Its earthy flavors counterbalance the sweetness of drinks, adding depth and a hint of spicy elegance.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2-3 sprigs of fresh rosemary

Instructions

  1. Mix water, sugar, and rosemary together in a small saucepan.
  2. Stirring occasionally will help the sugar dissolve while you bring the mixture to a boil.
  3. Simmer for 5 to 10 minutes, or until the syrup has slightly thickened, on low heat.
  4. Turn off the heat and let the syrup cool in the pan.
  5. To get rid of the rosemary sprigs, filter the syrup through a fine-mesh strainer.
  6. When you’re ready to use it, pour the syrup into a clean container and place it in the refrigerator.

Tips & Storage

  • Allow the rosemary sprigs to steep for a longer time for a more robust flavor.
  • Put the syrup in an airtight jar and refrigerate. This might go on for a month.
