Boozier than wine but breezier than gin, Lillet Blanc is a floral French aperitif. Here, it takes a refreshing dip with rosemary simple syrup and a splash of bubbly. A sprig of fresh rosemary in the glass means you'll catch a whiff with every sip.
Rosemary Simple Syrup
In a small saucepan, combine 1/4 cup sugar, 1/4 cup water and 2 halved rosemary sprigs. Bring to a boil, stirring to dissolve sugar. Remove from heat; let steep 30 minutes. Strain through a fine-mesh sieve into a small bowl, pressing on rosemary sprigs; discard sprigs.
Rosemary-Lillet Spritz by the Pitcher
In a small glass pitcher, combine 6 oz. Lillet Blanc, 6 oz. vodka, 4 teaspoons Rosemary Simple Syrup, and 4 teaspoons fresh lemon juice. Stir to combine. Pour mixture into ice-filled glasses. Top with generous splashes of club soda and garnish with fresh rosemary sprigs and lemon slices.
