ISSADA COCKTAIL HOUR: Rosemary Greyhound

Our latest blog series brings you signature Issada cocktail recipes that are inspired by the organic botanical and herb extracts we source from around the globe. Today’s episode of Issada Cocktail Hour brings you a Rosemary Greyhound.


You Will Need:

Rosemary Simple Syrup

• 2 cups of water
• 2 cups of sugar
• 6 sprigs of rosemary


• 2 ounces vodka
• ½ ounce rosemary simple syrup
• 4 ounces grapefruit juice
• sprig of rosemary to garnish


Simple Syrup: Dissolve the sugar into the water in a saucepan for 5 minutes but keep heat low to medium so that the mixture doesn’t crystallize. Remove from heat and steep rosemary springs in the syrup solution for at least an hour – and chill until cold.

Cocktail: Fill a tall glass with ice and fill with vodka, rosemary simple syrup, and grapefruit juice. Garnish with a sprig of rosemary.
