How to Make a Rosemary-Basil Gin Fizz

by The Gray Boxwood


  • 1 Ounce Gin
  • Juice of half a lemon
  • ½ Cups Water
  • ½ Cups Sugar
  • 4 Sprigs rosemary
  • 6 Basil leaves
  • Club soda
  • Instructions

    Step 1

    To start, you'll need to make what we called our Rosemary-Basil Infused Simple Syrup.

    Step 2

    Boil water, sugar, rosemary, and basil in a saucepan. Then turn to low heat and let simmer for ten minutes.

    Step 3

    Strain syrup and cool before using. This simple syrup can be stored in the refrigerator for later use.

    Step 4

    Add the juice of half a lemon and 1/4 cup of the Rosemary-Basil Infused Simple Syrup in a glass.

    Step 5

    Add 1 to 2 ounces of gin, preferably the best quality you can afford. (We love Hendrick's.) This drink can also be made without alcohol. Just add a bit more club soda in the next step.

    Step 6

    Top with club soda.

    Step 7

    Let it fizz! Garnish with some rosemary if you like. Then sip to your heart's content.
