As the girls go down for a quiet time, I find my own solace by pulling out the ice to fill up the glass. What proceeds is the quart sized mason jar filled with rosemary infused honey simple syrup, which gets portioned out over the ice. I pour the water with gas over and pop in a straw. Stir & drink.
Tastes of honey, woodsy pine & vanilla as the club soda tingles & cools this 39 week pregnant body instantly. But, it even works for the non-pregnant.
And I tell you what...if you don't want to do the rosemary route, you could cook down some raspberries and press through a sieve to use the juice to add to the honey simple syrup.
Rosemary Infused Honey Simple Syrup Spritzer (printable recipe)
Honey Simple Syrup
- 1 cup honey
- 1 cup water
Add the honey & water into a small pan over medium heat. Heat until the honey has completely dissolved. Remove from heat. From here, you can pour into a mason jar and infuse this simple syrup with any number of goods.
Refrigerate for up to two weeks.
***Rosemary Infused Honey Simple Syrup
- 5-6 fresh sprigs of rosemary
- one honey simple syrup (about 1 1/4 cup)
Add the rosemary to the honey simple syrup while it is still warm. Allow it to infuse for optimal flavor. I allowed mine to sit for at least an hour. Know that it only improves with days.
In a 10 ounce glass with ice, pour 2 Tb of the rosemary simple syrup in and top with club soda. If you would like it less sweet or more sweet, then adjust the amount of simple syrup you add.
