Herbal Rosemary -Blueberry Lemonade
I have been experimenting with Drinks that use herbs for some of the ingredients for a workshop that I am helping with next week. I think this turned out great. I adapted it from another recipe.
This is a beautiful, refreshing drink made from a fusion of herbs, berries, and good old-fashioned lemonade. Great served Iced.
Serves 4 to 6
1 quart water
1/4 cup fresh rosemary leaf or 1/8 cup dried rosemary
3 medium lemons
1/4 cup honey
1/3 cup white sugar
1 cup frozen blueberries
Make a rosemary infusion- steep rosemary in 1 quart of boiling water for 5 minutes - just like making brewed tea.
Strain the rosemary out of the water and then add honey and white sugar to the infused water and stir well.
Juice the lemons and add to the rosemary water.
Add the Frozen blueberries and ice cubes.
To serve pour lemonade into ice-filled glasses and garnish with sliced lemon and rosemary sprigs.
