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!
