Sips and Sounds, Volume 7

Vol. 7
The Sip: Lily, Rosemary and the Jack of Hearts
The Sound: Bob Dylan, Blood on the Tracks

This is one of my favorite Bob Dylan albums, and I recently got it on vinyl. Naturally, a Sips and Sounds session was in order! I was trying to decide between making my own riff on a Blood and Sand or taking inspiration from the track "Lily, Rosemary and the Jack of Hearts" and going the rosemary route. I went with the latter, and it was one of my the more interesting cocktails I've made. Recipe below!

LILY, ROSEMARY AND THE JACK OF HEARTS
Shake 1.5 gin, .5 oz rosemary syrup, a dash of apple cider vinegar and the juice of half a lemon with ice. Pour and enjoy!

To make the rosemary syrup, I simmered equal parts sugar and water with several sprigs of fresh rosemary, strained the mixture and let it cool.
