I decided to give this recipe a try in continuing with my theme of gin and updated classic cocktails like the ginger bramble. A gin fizz is pretty classic. Adding rosemary is definitely a twist, but it sounded like it would be a good pairing with the lemon juice. I had to test my theory!
I could not help but fall in love with this painting.
It has a certain fuzziness to it that reminds me of one of my favorite Summer drinks, a Rosemary Gin Fizz.
Just a few ingredients to this cocktail, and they’re all easy to find. Sure, it would be easier to find everything if you could buy gin at the grocery store, but now I’m just getting picky LOL! Besides, I didn’t have to shop for any of the ingredients–I had them all on hand.
This gin fizz was very easy to make, and the only special equipment needed is a muddler. You’re just bruising the rosemary leaves to release their flavor, and I imagine you could use a wooden spoon if you don’t have a muddler.
Everything is assembled in the glass. You don’t even need a cocktail shaker. Like I said, very easy to make. I had a beautiful cocktail made and garnished in 2 1/2 minutes.
