I’m a fresh-squeezed lemonade aficionado, so it took me a long time to embrace this recipe from my friend Madeline Wajda, a master gardener and chef who runs Willow Pond Farm in Fairfield, Pa. Over time, however, the frozen lemonade concentrate delivered a more consistent result. If you prefer, simply add the rosemary syrup to your own fresh lemonade recipe.
3 tablespoons fresh rosemary, finely chopped
1/4 cup sugar
1 cup water
1 12-ounce can frozen lemonade concentrate, thawed
3 cans water
Mix rosemary, sugar and 1 cup water in a saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a simmer and cook for 5 minutes. Strain into a bowl and set aside to cool. In a pitcher, mix lemonade concentrate with 3 cans of water. Add the cooled rosemary/sugar mixture. Serve over ice, garnished with sprigs of fresh rosemary. Makes 2 quarts.
