Yields: about 5 cups
Meyer Lemonade with Rosemary Sprigs
1/2 cup Meyer Lemon Juice
1 ½ cup Simple Syrup (recipe below)
4 cups Water
1 Sprig of fresh Rosemary for each glass
1. Combine all ingredients in a pitcher. Add a few freshly squeezed Meyer Lemon rinds. Stir to combine and serve over ice.
Don’t go overboard with the rosemary, because it can quickly overpower the lemonade. It should give just the subtlest hint of rosemary to compliment the Meyer lemons. Throw in a few of the squeezed Meyer lemon rinds into the lemonade to give it extra flavor. Citrus fruits release an incredible flavored oil in their rinds after squeezing which will add a deeper lemon flavor.
