Rosemary Lemon Drop Wine

Cheap. Fun. Easy. That’s how I describe this drink. (It’s also how I am described if I have too many of these.)

I like to sip this in the summer, or bring it to a friend’s place when they are having company. It always goes pretty fast.

The syrup lasts at least 6 months if put in a jar and kept in the fridge, so feel free to make a little extra to have on hand, since rosemary isn’t always in season.

Rosemary Lemon Drop Wine

What You’ll Need:

  • 2 cups water
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 8 lemons, peeled (save peels)
  • 8 rosemary sprigs
  • 3 bottles of cheap white table wine

Let’s Get Cooking:

  1. Boil water and sugar together, stirring often.
  2. Drop lemon peels into the sugar/water mix.
  3. Add rosemary springs to your sugar/water/lemon mixture.
  4. When the sugar dissolves, cool and strain the peels, seeds, and sprigs out of the simple syrup. You’ve now made a lemon rosemary simple syrup.
  5. Fill a 6 quart beverage dispenser with 3 bottles of wine
  6. Squeeze the 8 lemons in there and add about half of the syrup to the wine. (More to taste, if you care)/
  7. Serve over ice. If you want to get fancy, put some extra sprigs and lemon slices in the pitcher.
