Friends, we are now venturing into a new realm of foodie-ism. The world where we think of delicious flavors to add to cocktails and then MAKE IT HAPPEN.
Not a bad world, amirite???
Ever since moving to Louisville for my new job and working on spirit brands like Woodford Reserve, Tequila Herradura, and Old Forester, I’ve been introduced to a much wider world of awesome cocktails…new flavors, types of ingredients, ways of preparing, and so much more. I’m fascinated by all the new combinations that are out there. And now that I’ve dipped my toe in by making old fashioneds at home (using pre-made syrup that’s amazing), I feel like I can try and branch out more on my own.
So when I saw this recipe for rosemary simple syrup, I was intrigued. I happened to have some rosemary sitting in my fridge, so on a whim I got up off the couch and put the saucepan on the stove. And five minutes later (plus 20 minutes of steeping on its own), I had my own homemade rosemary simple syrup. I felt like a magician.
