Vodka Research – Lemon Rosemary

Still in experiment mode, however other life events are making my vodka research efforts more difficult.

IMG_1293Lemon-Rosemary is also a great combination but I’m still partial to the Cherry-Basil. No infused vodka in this mix, just a straight vodka mixed with two flavoured syrups.

  • 2 ounce vodka
  • 1 t Lemon Syrup
  • 1 t Rosemary Syrup

For Lemon Syrup: Grate/Microplane one lemon. Boil up 1.5 C sugar, 1 C water, remove from heat, throw in grated lemon peel, let cool, strain off peel.

For Rosemary Syrup: Boil up 1.5 C sugar, 1 C water, remove from heat, throw in 4 sprigs rosemary, let cool, strain off rosemary.

It was sheer accidental genius that I made lamb kebabs as a interlude snack for myself and research assistant since the lemon and rosemary paired beautifully with the lamb. I’m going to advertise that as strategy to everyone else.
