rosemary gin cider

As much as I can't wait for a break from the ridiculously hot, humid summers we have here, I don't really go crazy for fall. Scarves make my hair all tangly, pumpkin patches are torture, and Halloween is just the worst. However, I can definitely get into making (and eating) fall foods. I especially love honeycrisp apple cider, so I couldn't resist combining it with gin, rosemary, and a bit of lime for a perfect autumn cocktail.

Rosemary Gin Cider

2 ounces gin
4 ounces honeycrisp apple cider, chilled (we used Trader Joe's)
1 1/2 ounces lime juice
1 ounce club soda
Sprig of rosemary

Remove a few leaves of rosemary from the sprig.  Muddle the leaves with gin in the bottom of a glass. Stir in the gin, cider, and lime juice. Skim off the muddles leaves, then top with soda. Garnish with the sprig of rosemary, if desired.
