While we watched the last rays of the sun set over Positano, we enjoyed aperitifs on the stunning terrace at San Pietro. Sprigs of rosemary from the herb gardens perfumed this refreshing and unusual drink. I liked it so much I had to recreate my own version back home.

For the rosemary and lime syrup

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
4 long sprigs rosemary
450g caster sugar
2 limes, juiced and zest peeled into lengths
500ml water

For the cocktail

Quantity Ingredient
gin
ice
soda or tonic water
wedge lime for each glass
sprig rosemary for each glass

Method

  1. To make the syrup, put all the ingredients in a saucepan and bring to the boil, then lower the heat and simmer for 10 minutes. Remove from the heat and leave to cool. Line a sieve with muslin or a thin cloth and pour over a kettle-full of boiling water to sterilize it. Strain the syrup through the cloth into a sterilized jug and then into sterilized bottles and store in the fridge for up to 3 weeks.
  2. To make the cocktail, pour 30 ml syrup and 50 ml gin over ice, top with soda or tonic water and serve with a wedge of lime and a rosemary sprig.
