Every year a simple summer refreshment finds us and becomes the theme refreshment of that particular summer. Last summer it was passion-fruit, yoghurt & honey smoothies. The summer before that it was watermelon with lime. And so on. This summer it’s Rosemary lemonade, which we discovered at the Colorado College cafeteria of all places. After looking at a few recipes online, which have conflicting instructions on how exactly to infuse the rosemary into the simple syrup, we settled on a modified combination of a few versions that will make approximately one gallon of delicious Rosemary lemonade with Manitou spring water:

Ingredients:

6 sprigs of Rosemary
2 cups of sugar
2 cups of water
2 cups fresh-squeezed lemon juice
10-16 cups Manitou spring water to taste (we recommend Twin Springs on Ruxton, though any other spring water or club soda will suffice as a substitute)

Instructions:
Bring the water and sugar to a boil and stir until completely dissolved. Remove from heat and add three long sprigs of Rosemary. Let steep for 1/2 hour. Remove the sprigs of rosemary from the syrup and combine with lemon juice. Add remaining sprigs of Rosemary, ice and spring water to taste. This drink goes great with just about anything and makes a great mixer with vodka and tequila if you’re so inclined.

Enjoy!
