FOR THE COCKTAILS - Makes 2 Cocktails
- 2 oz fresh meyer lemon juice
- 4 oz tequila
- 4 oz water
- 1 oz rosemary simple syrup
First make the simple syrup. Place all the ingredients into a medium pot, bring to a simmer and cook until the liquid reduces in half and it gets thick and sweet.
Next make the rim garnish. Place all the ingredients into a food processor and whiz it up. If it feels a little moist after, just spread it out on a dish and let it dry out a bit or put it in a dehydrator for a moment.
Finally, make the cocktail. Run a lemon wedge around the rim of your glasses and dip them in the rim garnish. Then add the fresh lemon juice, tequila, water and rosemary simple syrup to a martini shaker. shake it good and pour into your glasses. You can also just pour the ingredients into the glasses themselves and stir well.
