    Rosemary and Clementine Sparkler

    This not-too-sweet sparkling mocktail has a great herbaceous kick, thanks to the combination of rosemary and juniper. With this recipe, you’ll likely be left with more simple syrup than you’ll need. Any leftovers can be kept refrigerated for several weeks and are lovely stirred into a warming cup of cranberry tea.

    Tip: Should you have some guests who’d like an extra kick to their cocktail, a splash of vodka or white rum would also be nice here.

    Pair with Lemon and Olive Oil Baked Feta!
