Rosemary Grapefruit Drop

Rosemary grapefruit drop

Someone gave me a recipe for this drink a couple of years ago. If you like vodka drinks, and especially if you like lemon drop vodka martinis, this rosemary grapefruit drop will satisfy your cravings.

The rosemary grapefruit drop is a fresh citrus based cocktail with a subtle infusion of rosemary. The pale pink color and the spike from the lemon and grapefruit are cooling and refreshing. It is the perfect drink for a mild summer evening.

The recipe for the rosemary simple syrup will make about one cup. You can refrigerate the syrup and have it handy for future happy hours.

All you need to make this special summer cocktail is a cocktail shaker, vodka, grapefruit, preferably fresh for juicing, a lemon, and some fresh rosemary leaves to make the infusion.

Add a scoop of ice to the cocktail shaker to chill the vodka and the juices. Rim a short cocktail glass with a little sugar and pour the rosemary grapefruit drop into the glass. You may garnish the drink with a lemon twist and a sprig of rosemary. Now, relish your first sip of this delightful and invigorating  summer cocktail.
