Rosemary Lemonade


During my recent travels, I met interesting people and along the way found that they have memorable recipes. Nothing says Summertime like a good old fashioned lemonade.  Nothing says spruced up and unforgettable lemonade like Rosemary Lemonade.  Heather treated us to this delightful beverage at a recent porch illumination over the 4th of July in the Pacific Northwest. Americana at its best!  We had our choice of a snow cone, Coke float, or lemonade.  My taste buds led me to the refreshing recipe that I couldn’t wait to share.  Thank you, Heather, for your warm hospitality and new found love for lemonade.

12 cups of water, divided

1 cup of sugar

12 sprigs of rosemary

1 cup fresh squeezed lemon juice

Bring 4 cups of water to a boil, add the sugar and stir until dissolved.  Remove from heat and add 12 sprigs of fresh rosemary. Cover and steep for 30 minutes.  Remove rosemary, let cool, then add 1`cup of fresh squeezed lemon juice and 8 cups of water.  Chill and allow flavors to blend for several hours before serving.  If possible, make this the day before, as the taste will be smoother.  Enjoy!
