Rosemary Simple Syrup:

Christmas Wreath Cocktail

  • 4 oz. organic cranberry juice
  • 12 oz. rosemary simple syrup
  • 1 oz. freshly squeezed organic lemon juice
  • 45 oz. Topo Chico
  • 2 oz. Tito’s vodka (optional)
  • Handful of frozen cranberries, for garnish
  • Sprigs of fresh rosemary, for garnish


Rosemary Simple Syrup:

  1. Combine your water and sugar in a small saucepan over medium-high heat. 
  2. Bring to a boil while stirring occasionally to dissolve the sugar. 
  3. Allow to simmer for about 5 minutes and then remove from heat. 
  4. Add your sprig of rosemary to your simple syrup mixture and allow it to steep for 15 minutes. 
  5. Once steeped, discard the rosemary and pour your simple syrup mixture into a glass mason jar or bottle. 
  6. Store in your fridge until you’re ready to use it…like right now! 😀

Christmas Wreath Cocktail:

  1. First, on a heatproof plate, light your rosemary on fire. 
  2. Blow out the flame, and place your lowball glass over the rosemary to capture the smoke. 
  3. While your glass is being filled with delicious rosemary smoke, pour the cranberry juice, rosemary simple syrup, lemon juice, and Tito’s (optional) in a drink shaker or mason jar filled with ice.
  4. Shake for about 15-20 seconds.
  5. Flip over your lowball glass now that it’s filled with rosemary smoke and strain your cocktail over it. Top with Topo Chico.
  6. Garnish with frozen cranberries (to keep your drink cold without watering it down!) and a sprig or two of rosemary! 🙂
