Cran-Rosemary Martini

How do you make concocting cocktails more fun than it already is? Roll the dice, cocktail dice that is - Leafcutter Designs. The best part about it is you get to drink the mistakes until you get it just right - lol.

I rolled the following dice: Vodka, cranberry, lime, “wild", shaken, martini glass - I looked in our herb garden and grabbed a handful of rosemary for the “wild" and viola! - an amazing Cran-Rosemary Martini

Cranberry juice, unsweetened (I used Knudsen’s Just Cranberry)
Vodka (I always use Tito’s, an award-winning favorite)
Rosemary Light Simple Syrup (recipe below)
2 Limes - for juice and garnish

Rosemary Light Simple Syrup

In a small sauce pan, add 1/2 cup water, 1/4 cup turbinado sugar and 5 sprigs rosemary (each approximately 2 inches long). Bring to a boil for 1 minute, then let stand for 30 minutes. So worth it and AMAZING!

In a cocktail shaker add the following:

1 shot cranberry juice
1 1/2 shots vodka
1 shot Rosemary Light Simple Syrup
1/2 shot lime juice

Add cubed ice to the cocktail shaker and shake until nice and cold. Pour in a martini glass. Garnish with a sprig of rosemary and a twist of lime and enjoy!
