Ingredients for a single cocktail:

  • Sugar
  • Water
  • Rye whiskey
  • Lemon juice
  • Sparkling apple soda
  • Fresh rosemary


  1. Start by making the simple syrup. Put one cup of sugar and one cup of water into a saucepan and wait for it to boil. Once the sugar is dissolved take the pan off heat and add sprigs of fresh rosemary. The leftovers can be stored in the fridge.
  2. In a cocktail glass, mix 2 oz of rye whiskey, 1/2 oz rosemary simple syrup and 1/2 oz of lemon juice.
  3. Add ice, sparking apple soda (such as Izze Sparkling Apple), and a dash of bitters to top it off.
  4. Garnish with a sprig of rosemary. Enjoy!
