Rosemary's Plum Gin Cocktail

Rosemary's Plum Gin Cocktail
Rosemary's Plum gin cocktail is a blend of fresh ingredients and aromas. Thanks to the addition of fresh plum and St. Germain there is no need to add any additional sugar. Instead, I pair it with gin and rosemary for a fresh and herbaceous drink.

How to cook:
  1. In a cocktail shaker, combine the plum chunks and rosemary sprig with a splash of soda water. Muddle until you begin to smell the rosemary (less muddle is more - press your muddler down and give it a few gentle twists to start.)
