Herbaceous rosemary and sweet strawberries marry with aromatic gin in this twist on the classic Gimlet cocktail.

Strawberry Rosemary Syrup

  • 2 cups frozen California strawberries
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • ½ cup water
  • 1 Tbsp chopped rosemary leaves plus more rosemary sprigs for garnish

Per drink:

  • oz gin or vodka
  • 1 oz strawberry rosemary syrup
  • ¼ oz strained lime or lemon juice
  • handful of ice


To make the strawberry rosemary syrup:

  • In a medium saucepan, bring the strawberries, sugar, water, and rosemary leaves to simmer on medium-high heat. Reduce heat to low and simmer 15-20 minutes until the syrup is thick and strawberries are very soft.
  • In a large, fine mesh sieve set over a bowl, strain the syrup, but do not press on the solids. Chill syrup until at least room temperature. Use for cocktails or save in the fridge for up to a week.

To make a single drink:

  • Shake gin, syrup, lime juice, and a handful of ice in a cocktail shaker. Strain into small coupe glasses (or other glasses of your choice). Garnish with a sprig of rosemary.
