Here is another unusual coffee drink for the warming weather. This one requires you to have cold brew pre-made or pre-purchased, your favorite one will do.
The first step is to make the rosemary syrup, don’t worry this is easy. If you are worried you won’t like the recipe, the rosemary syrup won’t break the bank–you probably have two of the three ingredients at home already (water and sugar).
Ingredients for Rosemary Syrup
1 Cup Water
1 Cup Sugar
5 Fresh Sprigs Rosemary
Combine ingredients in sauce pan and bring to boil while stirring. After sugar dissolves let cool and pour into storage container. The syrup can be stored in your refrigerator.
To create your beverage combine cold brew, milk of choice and ice as you normally would. Add one tablespoon of syrup and stir thoroughly. Enjoy immediately.
The Victor crew came across an interesting flavor profile for coffee: Rosemary Coffee. There is a hotel in Charleston, SC called The Restoration that has a coffee bar called The Rise in their public space. They receive coffees and teas from all over the world. They also blend teas with notes of poppy, chamomile, and lavender. The thought of rosemary iced coffee sounds wonderful! But I can’t go all the way down to Charleston to get it!
Search engines to the rescue! Here are some variations we found:
Rosemary Simple Syrup:
3-5 sprigs of fresh rosemary
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 cup water
Bring sugar and water to a boil, stirring constantly until dissolved. Add rosemary and allow to simmer for 5 minutes. Turn to low and for another 10 minutes. Turn off heat and let sit 15-30 minutes to desired flavor. Add to your cold-brewed coffee in the amount you crave.
