Rosemary Citrus Martini Recipe

Happy Hour: Rosemary Clementine Sparkle

There's something so enticing about a cocktail that incorporates rosemary. In most drink recipes, like the one seen here, the rosemary is muddled in a cocktail shaker, so the finished libation has an earthy, fresh, woodsy quality, but no chunks of the actual herb. This concoction is especially alluring because it combines the subtle kiss of rosemary with vibrant, tart citrus. Although the base spirit is vodka, a Champagne float sits on top of the glass, giving the drink a delightful effervescence. It's a wonderfully elegant beverage, and I recommend serving it at a sophisticated soirée. Ready for the recipe? Keep reading.
