Don’t Judge Me Mondays: Boozy Rosemary Limeade

/ Uncategorized

I hope you’re all enjoying a day off today in honor of Memorial Day!  It’s supposed to be 80 and beautiful here today and I cannot wait!

Now that the weather has warmed I have been craving limeade like crazy.  We’ve seen how well rosemary pairs with citrus, so I thought this would the perfect opportunity to share one last Flavor of the Month recipe with you!  It uses the rosemary syrup I made awhile back and fresh lime juice for a tart and refreshing drink to enjoy on this lovely day!  An added bonus is that it can easily be made as a mocktail also if you have non-drinkers in your crew (I made it that way for the book club ladies and it was a hit!), just eliminate the vodka.

Let’s get our limeade on!

Start by mixing the fresh lime juice and syrup together.  I used my 2-cup liquid measuring cup so that I could easily pour it into the glasses.  You can also set the mixture aside to chill at this point if you want to make the drinks later.

Fill 4 pint glasses halfway with ice (Actually used mason jars!)  Now divide the lime juice and syrup mixture equally among the glasses. Pour a shot (1 1/2 ounces) of vodka into each glass and stir. Now top off each glass with about 6 ounces of sparkling water and gently stir.

Serve with a straw, a slice of lime and rosemary sprig for garnish.  This drink is the perfect cooler for a warm day!  I should note that I made mine fairly tart.  If you like a sweeter limeade, use about a cup of the syrup.

Enjoy!
