Thirsty Thursday – Rosemary Basil Cocktail Recipe

We had some leftover Rosemary and whipped up a quick Rosemary Simple Syrup (recipe below) and made this Rosemary Basil Cocktail! So good, you have to try it!


  1. Add 1/2 cup of sugar and 1/2 cup of water to a sauce pan. Heat over medium heat, stirring occasionally.
  2. When the sugar is fully dissolved and the liquid is clear, remove from the heat and add 2 sprigs of rosemary.
  3. Let the rosemary sit in the syrup for at least 1/2 hour then strain a container and store in the fridge until you are ready to use it.


  1. Add fresh basil to your shaker and muddle. You can also just tear the basil into pieces.
  2. Add ice, 2 oz of tequila, about 2 oz of the rosemary simple syrup, and shake.
  3. Pour over ice and garnish with a rosemary sprig or basil leaf.
