This little cocktail is one of my favorites. I love trying new cocktails. I think my bartending background has something to do with that! Its fun though and its fun to find a new drink that is really tasty. And this one fits that description.
1 ounce elderflower liquor (recommend St. Germain)
1–2 ounce pink grapefruit juice (fresh squeezed and strained)
1/4 ounce lemon juice (fresh squeezed)
1/4 ounce rosemary simple syrup
To make simple syrup:
Add rosemary along with sugar and 1 cup water to a small saucepan. Bring to simmer and stir until sugar dissolves. Turn off heat and allow it to steep for 30 minuters until it cools. Remove rosemary and store in an airtight jar in refrigerator.
To make cocktail:
In a mixing glass three-quarters filled with ie, combine all liquid ingredients. Stir until chilled, about 30 seconds. Strain into a chilled coupe glass. Garnish with a small slice of grapefruit or rosemary sprig.
