My old navy buddy Coy just texted, said he had a rosemary cocktail recipe that they have been enjoying lately and said I should give it a try. A Google search of the ingredients led me to a couple of similar drinks, the closest is ‘The Ophelia’ from Olivia’s restaurant in Denver.
Whatever the actual name is, it’s pretty awesome.
Rosemary muddled in lemon juice with gin and ginger beer? Luckily, I have rosemary in the garden, lemons and Fever Tree ginger beer in the fridge and Hendricks gin in the bar. So, of course, I immediately made one and yeah, it’s really good.
Here’s The Ophelia Cocktail recipe:
- 1.5 oz Gin, Hendricks or The Botanist
- 1 Tablespoon Lemon juice
- 1 Tablespoon fresh Rosemary
- 3 oz Ginger beer, Fever Tree or Main Root
- Sprig of Rosemary for Garnish
-Muddle the rosemary with the lemon juice
-Strain into a tumbler glass over ice
-Add gin and ginger beer
-Stir, garnish with rosemary and enjoy!
