Rosemary-Ginger Cocktail

Posted on Dec 13, 2012 in Drink This, Recipes | 1 comment

1.5 oz vodka

.25 oz ginger liqueur (see note)

1 lemon wedge

Sprig of rosemary

 

For the most rosemary-ish possible cocktail, pour the vodka into a cocktail shaker and muddle (crush) the rosemary, then cap it and let it sit for an hour or two.  This only works if you start early, so otherwise, combine the vodka, ginger liqueur, juice from the lemon wedge, and most of the rosemary in a cocktail shaker, muddle, shake vigorously over ice, and strain into a cocktail glass using a fine mesh strainer to keep out the herbal bits.  Garnish with the rest of the rosemary sprig.  (Note: Add more ginger liqueur to taste. My new favorite is The King’s GingerDomaine de Canton is sweeter and milder but also a good choice. If you have neither, how about fresh ginger simple syrup?)

  1. Hi Amy.

    Found this site via Garden Rant and was intrigued by the ‘Drunken Botanist’ moniker. I like this recipe. As alcoholic drinks go, this actually looks healthy ;-)
