Rosemary Grapefruit Spritzers

Ahh… refreshing

I guarantee that’s what you’ll say when you enjoy this citrusy cocktail with a hint of rosemary

Let’s start by making a rosemary infused simple syrup

Measure one cup each of water and sugar, bring to a boil over medium heat and simmer until the sugar is dissolved

Add in a spring of fresh rosemary and simmer for about 5 minutes more.  Turn off the heat and let steep for 10 minutes

You can do this step ahead of time and keep the rosemary infused simple syrup in the fridge

Or, if you’re like me and don’t plan ahead, you can stick it in the freezer for a bit to chill down

Measure out 2 ounces of vodka, 1/2 cup of ruby red grapefruit juice, 1/4 cup of rosemary simple syrup and a splash of seltzer per cocktail

You’ll still get the great rosemary flavor but less sweetness if you prefer to only add in 1/8 cup of the simple syrup

Pour over ice, stir and enjoy this refreshing cocktail with your favorite happy hour friends!
