Rosemary Lemonade

Rosemary adds a herbal note to homemade lemonade. Garnishing the glasses with a sprig of lemon balm or mint adds an extra touch.

INGREDIENTS

  • 4 cups water
  • 6 sprigs fresh rosemary
  • 3/4 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice (about 3 large lemons)

Bring the water to boil in a medium pot, and then reduce the heat so that the water barely simmers. Add the rosemary sprigs; cover and steep the rosemary for 45 minutes.

Remove the pot from heat and remove the rosemary sprigs. (strain the mixture to remove loose leaves.) Add the honey; stir, set aside to cool.
Put the lemon juice into a large glass container and add the cooled rosemary infusion; stir until well combined. Taste the lemonade and sweeten with additional honey if desired.

Refrigerate until cold.
