Rosemary lemonade made with a rosemary simple syrup is a refreshing Mediterranean twist on our favorite summer thirst quencher.
The key to infusing piney rosemary into lemonade is to make a simple syrup. This fragrant golden syrup is so easy to make. Just remember the simple ratio of 1:1 sugar to water.
