Rosemary Simple Syrup

Rated as 5 out of 5 Stars

"Like the essence of a Mediterranean summer distilled into a sweet herbal syrup. Stir it into lemonade, flavor a cocktail, glaze a cake, or churn it into a sorbet. So refreshing. Store in the refrigerator for up to 1 month."

Delicious!! Mix with freshly squeezed lemons and vodka!

Easy to make it and I added a lemon zest. Great recipe.Thank you!

Easy, sime. Technically you could make it with just a microwave but there is something about open boils. I bit overly sweet, heads up, taste as you add sugar.
