I can’t wait to show you how I made the best citrus rosemary cocktail you’ve ever had!



my inspiration for a summer cocktail


I was trying to decide what cocktail I wanted to make to go along with my summer picnic theme. Since I created a lemon themed picnic tablescape, I thought a lemon based cocktail would be perfect.


And lemons just scream summer, don’t they??


I just love growing herbs, and rosemary is one of my faves. The flavors of lemon and rosemary blend beautifully together, so I decided to create a citrus rosemary cocktail for my picnic.


I also use lemon and rosemary together in my dishwasher rinse aid.
