When we released our 2 Pepper Agave syrup just before Valentine’s Day, our cocktail of choice for that was called Relationship Juice. When we designed the mocktail, it was, of course, called the Meet Cute, a funny or charming first encounter between a future romantic couple.
This mocktail is both charming and witty and a great way to ease into our Dry January. The fresh lemon twist and rosemary give this craft beverage complexity and depth while also adding bright and fresh flavors.
1 oz syrup
A little less than 1 oz lemon juice
Long lemon peel
Sprig of rosemary
Spiral lemon twist around Collins glass- filling with ice as you go. Give the Rosemary a couple smacks to wake it up and place the sprig down the center of the glass. Fill ½ way with soda. Add syrup and fill the remaining way with soda. Use Bar spoon or Chopstick to stir and help place lemon twist and rosemary sprig. Adjust sweetness/tartness by adding more or less of syrup or lemon juice.
