  • 2 cups water

  • 1 cup sugar

  • 2 sprigs rosemary

  • 8 Tablespoons fresh blood orange juice (from 1 large blood orange)

  • 6 Tablespoons gin (I use The West Winds Gin – The Cutlass)

  • 2 cups lemonade (you can use soda or tonic water if you prefer)

  • Ice cubes, blood orange slices and rosemary sprigs, to serve


  1. Bring water, sugar and rosemary to a simmer over medium heat for 3-5 minutes, until sugar has dissolved. Remove from heat, steep for 15 minutes and strain into a container to cool. Reserve 6 Tablespoons for your drinks now, save the rest for future drinks. Bonus!

  2. Divide blood orange juice, gin, rosemary syrup and lemonade equally between two glasses. Top up with ice cubes, a slice of blood orange and a sprig of rosemary.
