To make rosemary simple syrup: In a small saucepan over medium/high heat, heat the water, sugar, and rosemary until it comes to a simmer. Stir to dissolve the sugar and continue simmering gently for 5 minutes, reduce heat and let simmer on low for an additional 5 minutes. Then, remove from heat and let the liquid cool.

How do you serve rosemary gin and tonic?
Gin and tonics are often served in a high glass glass or rocks glass. They are traditionally served over a large amount of ice and garnished with a slice of lime.
However, since this a twist on a classic. I often serve a rosemary gin and tonic with a different beautiful garnish.
Garnish a rosemary gin and tonic with:
- A dried orange slice
- A sprig of candied rosemary
- With a slice of fresh grapefruit
Which citrus goes best with a rosemary gin and tonic?
Gin and tonic is traditionally garnished with a slice of lime, which is often squeezed into the drink before being placed into the cocktail. You can swap the lime for another citrus fruit of choice. I strongly recommend using grapefruit or orange. Both pair beautifully with rosemary syrup. If you love the combination as much as I do, try my grapefruit rosemary paloma cocktail
