It’s Friday, so you know what that means…Cameron and I survived another week with a newborn – huzzah! While that is reason enough to toast, we upped the ante and socialized. With actual people. And we didn’t fall asleep halfway through dinner. Miracle of miracles.

Where was I? Ah yes…rosemary simple syrup. Seriously, shut the front door, walk into the kitchen, and make this simple syrup. It will take you all of five minutes, and it’s worth every single expended moment.

I love this simple syrup because it’s totally refined sugar free, therefore healthy. Okay, fine, that’s a stretch, but it is factual that it’s not as cloyingly sweet as white sugar simple syrup, and that subtleness is exactly what a honey bourbon cocktail needs.

The hint of rosemary after it’s steeped in the simple syrup is just that – a hint. A tickle. A little more than a suggestion. It perfectly ties together the earthy notes from the bourbon and the buttery notes from the honey simple syrup.

A little orange peel adds that final, fresh touch. In other words – perfection.

I wish you all the happiest of weekends and shall live vicariously through your full nights of sleep. Bottoms up!
