This post focuses on a hearty, earthy herb – rosemary. A great staple for the garden, rosemary plants can become very large in size – as big as hedges in some cases! Commonly paired with lamb, or other proteins that can take a lot of strong flavors, rosemary has a unique flavor. The sweetness and tartness of the lemonade perfectly compliment the dark, earthiness of the rosemary. This refreshing take on a summer tradition is sure to wow your friends, and they will never know how simple and easy a recipe this is!
