RECIPE

Apple Cider Breeze
1.5 oz Crown Royal
1 oz Lemon Juice
1 oz Rosemary Simple Syrup (recipe below)
1 oz Apple Cider

Combine all ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake vigorously and strain into rocks or old fashioned glass. Garnish with a cherry.

Rosemary Simple Syrup
1 cup sugar
1 cup white sugar
1/4 cup rosemary leaves

Combine water, sugar, and rosemary leaves in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil, stirring until sugar dissolves. Simmer for 1 minute. Remove from heat and let syrup steep, about 30 minutes.
Pour syrup into a sterilized glass jar through a mesh strainer to remove rosemary leaves; let cool.
