  2. Next, add lemons and cook for 3 minutes.
  3. Then, remove from heat, stir in the thyme, and allow to cool to room temperature.
  4. Finally, strain and store in a sealed container in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.

2. Salted Rosemary SYRUP

Our next herbal syrup adds lovely savoury notes and aromatics to your spring and summer sips. By swapping out the choice of sweetener, you can contribute even more depth of flavour to your cocktails like rich molasses. Feel free to swap out rosemary with any other savoury herb like thyme or oregano for further complexity!

  • 1 cup water
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 2 sprigs of rosemary


  • Firstly, add sugar, water, and salt to a small saucepan on medium heat and stir to combine. 
  • Next, reduce heat and add rosemary sprigs. Simmer for 30 minutes.
  • Finally, strain and store in a sealed container in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.
