Spiked seltzers and vodka sodas can get drab and repetitive in the dog days of summer.
Beat the heat this week with a more refined, botanical restyle to the classic White Claw: the Rosemary Lemon Vodka Spritzer.
Spritzers are a playful mix of wine and soda water. In other words, the perfect base for a mysterious and ingenious cocktail. Pop over to your neighborhood plot or personal herb garden and snip some fresh rosemary to make this crisp, clean cocktail with a sweet hint of honey.
To make one cocktail you will need:
1 oz vodka
2 rosemary sprigs
1/2 teaspoon honey
Prosecco or club soda
Lemon and mint to garnish
Add vodka, rosemary, honey and squeeze half a lemon into a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake!
Strain mixture into a high ball glass with ice. Finish with prosecco or club soda, whichever you fancy. Garnish with a rosemary sprig and wedge of lemon. Top with fresh mint and voila! Enjoy your cocktail that’s as fresh as a summer’s breeze.
