At long last the summer weather has arrived! Whether it be for a day or all week long, we’re totally immersing ourselves in the sunshine and have a delicious drink recipe to keep you cool!
This recipe makes enough for two gimlets, but once you’ve tried it we’re sure you’ll be doubling the measurements. A twist on a classic summer cocktail, the addition of rosemary simple syrup elevates the drink. It’s equally refreshing without the gin, so you can sip away at it while working remotely in your garden!
To begin you will need to prepare rosemary simple syrup - which is as straightforward as it sounds, but you may have to make it ahead of time.
In a pot, combine four tablespoons of granulated sugar with four tablespoons of water and heat over a medium heat, stirring occasionally. Add a couple of sprigs of fresh rosemary, and continue to heat until the sugar has dissolved. Set this aside to cool.
Add 50ml of gin, 50ml of your rosemary simple syrup and 60ml of fresh lime juice to a shaker with ice. Shake well, strain and serve in a chilled glass with ice, and a sprig of rosemary as a garnish.
If you would like to leave out the alcohol, adding a dash of tonic water after shaking is divine!
We think our Spencer & Benefield tumbler compliments this summer cooler perfectly, and looks beautiful paired with our Áras linens as photographed above.
