Saturday Sippers in The Locker
Ahoy Fellow Fathomers! Welcome to the feature here in The Locker called Saturday Sippers. Each week I’ll post a new skinny cocktail recipe for you to try. Many thinks to my Cali Bestie, Rhonda, for providing me with the deck of cards recipe book. J
Rosemary…one of the most pungent, popular herbs. I have two wonderful bushes of rosemary growing just outside my front door. I love the smell after a fresh rain or the wind blows, releasing the aroma throughout the air. This drink sounded absolutely delightful, (even without the alcohol) combining several of my favorite items.
ROSEMARY-INFUSED CUCUMBER LEMONADE!
3 large cucumbers
1 T chopped fresh rosemary, plus 4 sprigs for garnish
1 c water
½ c lemon juice
3 T agave syrup
Cucumber slices for garnish
