Somewhere in Sicily there’s a garden that wishes it smelled as good as this cocktail syrup. It’s all about the balance between bright, zingy orange and lime juice, and woodsy rosemary. Fresh, herbaceous, and delicately sweet, this golden elixir goes down almost too easy paired with gin, vodka, tequila or whatever sparkling wine you’re drinking. Just a tablespoon transforms your drink into something — dare we say — deluxe. And since there’s about 16 servings per bottle, that adds up to a whole bunch of (very) happy hours. One whiff and you’ll be picturing yourself under a vine-y pergola on a warmish evening. Mind if we join?

Tip of the tongue:
How about a rosemary mimosa? Combine 0.5 oz syrup with 5 oz sparkling wine and float a rosemary sprig in the flute. Or take it to the tropics with 0.5 oz syrup, 1.5 oz. rum, several dashes orange bitters, 4 oz seltzer, and an orange slice.
