  1. 1. Prepare Simple Syrup (if not available):
    In a small saucepan, combine equal parts water and granulated sugar (e.g., 20ml of each).
    Heat over medium heat, stirring until the sugar dissolves completely.
    Remove from heat and let it cool. This makes more simple syrup than needed for the recipe; you can store the rest in the refrigerator for future use.

    2. Muddle Rosemary:
    In a mixing glass or cocktail shaker, add the fresh rosemary sprig and simple syrup.
    Use a muddler or the back of a spoon to gently muddle the rosemary to release its aromatic oils.

    3. Add Vodka and Lime Juice:
    To the same glass or shaker, pour in the vodka and fresh lime juice.
    Add ice cubes to the glass or shaker.

    4. Shake (if using a shaker):
    If using a shaker, cover it and shake vigorously for about 10 seconds.

    5. Strain and Serve:
    If using a mixing glass, strain the mixture into a chilled martini or cocktail glass.
    If using a shaker, strain the mixture into a chilled martini or cocktail glass.

    6. Garnish (Optional):
    Garnish your Rosemary Vodka Gimlet with a lime wheel or twist and a fresh rosemary sprig for a touch of elegance.

    7. Enjoy:
    Sip and savor your Rosemary Vodka Gimlet, a refined fusion of vodka’s smoothness, tangy lime, and the aromatic embrace of rosemary.
