Pin 205, Rosemary Gin Rickey

I found my new drink.


I’ve had a handful of mixed drinks that I’ve ordered on a regular basis. Vodka Sour was one for a while, Mojito was another. I don’t like Martinis and I usually order a vodka drink if any. But this one sounded so unique and delicious. I made the simple syrup last week and the smell permeated the house. Loved it. I finally got all the ingredients together to try it out.


The combination of flavors is so delightful. Yes, its delightful. And the smell and flavor of the rosemary lingers after you’ve guzzeled down your sip. Let me just say, I bought two little bottles of Bombay Gin and I’m making a second cocktail as soon as this post is up. Done. Scuse me while I get my drink on.
