Rosemary Gin Whippet Cocktail

064 If you like Salty Dogs or Italian Greyhounds, then the Rosemary Gin Whippet will be an equally pleasing cocktail for you.  The flavors of the gin and rosemary complement each other really well and the sugar from the simple syrup cuts the bitterness of the grapefruit.  Keep this one in your recipe books folks because it will make a great holiday cocktail.  See after the jump for ingredients and recipe...
062 Ingredients:
  • 1 1/2 ounces gin
  • 1/2 rosemary simple syrup
  • 5 ounces grapefruit juice
  • rosemary sprig for garnish
  • rosemary sugar for rim (optional- recipe to come later on the blog)
  1. If rimming with rosemary sugar, take a lemon wedge and and rim glass, then dip in rosemary sugar. 
  2. Mix gin, rosemary simple syrup, and grapefruit juice in a cocktail shaker over ice.
  3. Pour into glass and garnish with rosemary sprig. 
  4. Enjoy!


  1. Yum! I like that it sounds a bit savory too. Lovely photos, they're very tempting.

    Stay in the Lines

  2. Gin is my top spirit of choice and rosemary wins every time. I'll be making this for sure!

  3. i love rosemary in drinks! this sounds amazing!

  4. i'm so not sophisticated - i haven't tried any of these cocktails, but rosemary is my favorite herb, so i'm pretty sure i'd love this!

  5. If you wish to hit liquors at club, then go for gins (preferably the branded ones). I tasted one from a catering nyc that served in my sister's wedding, and it totally rocked.

  6. I saw this same drink at liquor online. I think they only differ on the fruit juice they mixed on. It was strawberry and was a lot better. The sweetness made the drink over the top. You should try it.
