Citrus & Herb

{click to enlarge}

Summer is here and to us, nothing signals it better than the bright, juicy colors of citrus! Lemon, lime, orange; we love them all and are intrigued with the idea of adding the subtle greens of herbs to balance out that punch of color. A trend right now is using herbal notes in floral arrangements, event motifs, even favors for your guests. The sensory experience they create, alone or married with citrus, are heavenly. And while nothing tastes more refreshing than lemonade on a hot summer's night, why don't you try this lemon and rosemary recipe for your signature cocktail? Cheers!

Rosemary Lemon Fizz
1 1/2 oz Skyy Infusions Citrus flavored vodka
1/2 organic rosemary sprig
1/2 oz Meyer lemon juice
1/2 oz simple syrup
Dash of Soda
Garnish: rosemary sprig

Muddle rosemary with lemon juice and simple syrup in a shaker. Add ice and vodka and shake. Strain over fresh ice and top with soda. Garnish with fresh rosemary sprig.
