Simple and elegant, an O’Christmas Tree Martini will become your go-to holiday gin martini. PS. it’s flavored with rosemary and thus also known as a rosemary gin martini!
Day four of my week of cocktails!!!
Ok so I have been obsessing over rosemary infused simple syrup a bit too much – but the fact that it’s something so simple and that it can elevate a cocktail recipe to a new sophistication… or for an O’Christmas Tree Martini aka. a Rosemary Gin Martini a new elegance is just so… COOL! (Cool = not really being a word that is elegant or sophisticated lol!)
Which also made me realize as I was making the cocktails that I did not follow my own instructions for this batch of syrup; I should have removed the rosemary sprigs from the syrup before storing it. So note: the longer it’s in the fridge with the rosemary sprigs, the browner the syrup will become…
Happy accident though! The golden hue gives that extra holiday magic!
Hope you enjoy!
