To clean up this lemon & rosemary cocktail, we made it refined sugar-free by making our simple syrup with local raw honey.

Further Food Nutritionist Commentary:

Indulge with this Rosemary Lemon Cocktail. Rosemary is high in antioxidants (specifically carnosic acid), which helps reduce the damage of free radicals in the brain, improves digestion, and reduces inflammation. Lemons are high in Vitamin C which improves the immune system, improves skin quality and can reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease.
