Rosada by Gastronomblog (commentary and opinion entirely our own)
1 oz. rosemary simple syrup*
1.75 oz high quality silver tequila
2.75 oz. fresh squeezed ruby red grapefruit juice
½ oz. fresh lime juice
Make the rosemary simple syrup – don’t skip this part. It is essential to the drink. Combine all ingredients in a shaker with ice. Shake and strain into glass with fresh ice. Garnish with a rosemary sprig.
Just a note: We actually garnished this. We made the simple syrup. It was possibly one of the best cocktails I have ever had. Superb from beginning to end. When we ran out of tequila, we substituted gin and it was absolutely fantastic as well.
*Rosemary simple syrup: combine ½ cup water and ½ cup sugar in a saucepan over medium heat and cook (stirring constantly) until sugar is dissolved. Add 2 small sprigs rosemary and boil for 1 minute. Remove from heat and let it steep until cooled. Remove sprigs and store in refrigerator for up to 1 week.
