A simple, refreshing gin fizz cocktail featuring the subtle flavors of juniper berries and rosemary paired with a zip of winter citrus.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup water

  • 1/2 cup sugar

  • 1 tablespoon Frontier Co-op Whole Juniper Berries

  • 3 sprigs fresh rosemary, divided

  • 4 fluid ounces citrus juice (grapefruit, orange or lemon)

  • 3 fluid ounces gin

  • Ice

  • Club soda, to finish

Directions

    1. In a small saucepan over high heat, combine water, sugar, chopped juniper berries and 1 sprig rosemary. Bring to a boil, stirring often, then reduce to a simmer and let cook for 4 minutes. Remove from heat, strain and let cool.

    2. In a shaker, combine citrus juice, gin and 4 teaspoons simple syrup. Strain into 2 glasses filled with ice and finish with club soda and sprigs of rosemary.

    For a deep red-orange color, try using blood oranges. Fresh-squeezed citrus juice works best. Try a combination of whatever citrus you might have on hand or what's fresh or in season.
