Shoogie-tini

I have a dinner party to attend tonight and I am always looking for ways to make things with the freshest and most tasty ingredients.  Anyone who knows me, knows that I have a love of cooking and baking and out of that love has come the Shoogie line.  All of the ingredients I use in my products are food grade, with the exception of a few essential oils like Sandalwood and Eucalyptus, but if you are a Koala Bear, then I guess it is food grade for you.

So, with that in mind, this week I have decided to post my recipe for an unusual drink combination that is not only lovely, but fresh and summery.  You most certainly could omit the Vodka if you are making mocktails...but if you want the fun, keep it in.

I started by making the simple syrup:
1 C. Water
3/4 C. Raw Honey
1/4 C. Raw Sugar
3-4 sprigs Rosemary

Boil all these ingredients in a pan for a few minutes then turn off and cool.  Pour into a tightly sealed mason jar and let sit in the fridge for 1 week so you get the rosemary essential oil flavor into the syrup.  Or if you are not willing to wait, 2 drops of Organic Rosemary essential oil into the syrup will work too.

Now Comes the fun part:
Fresh Limes
Fresh Lemons
Vodka
Sprigs of Rosemary

Into a shaker:
Juice 1 lime and 1 lemon
3 oz. Vodka
1-2 Tablespoons simple syrup (to taste)
Fill shaker 1/2 with ice and shake.
Pour into 2 martini glasses
Garnish with a lemon wheel and floating sprig of Rosemary

MAKES: 2 tasty Shoogie-tinis...Enjoy!
