we just had our 4th annual friendsgiving. it was sensational + exceptionally delicious.
we each prepare 2 or 3 dishes with the challenge of trying to top last years. amongst the white truffle oil smashed red potatoes, pancetta sautéed brussel sprouts with maple glaze, roasted beet salad and sage + garlic stuffed turkey, we made a signature cocktail for the evening; rosemary infused gin fizz.
the recipe was a combination of a few that sounded easy and sweet, but after reading this recipe, i based mine off of that.
rosemary gin fizz
2 C. rosemary infused simple syrup (1 c. sugar + 1c. water + handful rosemary sprigs, brought to boil until sugar dissolves. remove sprigs)
2 1/4 C. gin
2/3 C. freshly squeezed lemon juice
2 C. club soda
1 bottle Prosecco
mix in large pitcher or punch bowl and add fresh sprigs of rosemary to each glass. (we added a splash of prosecco to our finished cocktails to add a bit more *sparkling* )
i have some sweet and flavorful cardamom + clover simple syrup from williams sonoma and am curious to try that with the gin + prosecco too. i'll keep you posted once i try it. perhaps this weekend : )
