Herbal Honey Vodka Sparkler

Herbal Honey Vodka Sparkler

This recipe was inspired by 3 things. Mainly my sister who makes this with 1T of dried lavender, but also the heat wave that’s hitting Seattle right now and the huge rosemary bushes I have in the backyard. YEAH for free ingredients!

This is a refreshing cocktail that isn’t too sweet and has an interesting herbal flavor. It’s a fun and unique drink to share at a party, and makes a great hostess gift. You can also experiment with different woody herbs; like thyme, oregano or marjoram.

1 C Vodka*

1T Honey

2 5in pieces of Rosemary (4 extra pieces if you want to garnish the glasses)

Seltzer water and ice

Combine vodka, honey and rosemary in a covered container. Let it sit for at least 5 hours, preferably over night. Place ice in a glass, pour 2oz in each glass and add 5oz of seltzer water, or to taste. Garnish with a rosemary sprig and enjoy!

Serves 4

*After trying several vodkas at a tasting I found Luksusowa, a Polish potato vodka, to be my favorite.
