Rosemary Lemonade

The rosemary lemonade is just a variation on my basic lemonade, but it certainly turned out well!

4-5 lemons
4 1/2-5 cups water
1/2 cup sugar (I do 1/2 brown sugar & 1/2 white)
2 sprigs rosemary

You can play with the amounts of everything of course to make it as sweet or tart as you like.

Cover one sprig rosemary with 2 1/2 cups hot water & let sit for 20 mins.
Juice lemons & keep pulp.
Remove rosemary from water.
Add lemon juice and sugar and stir until sugar dissolved.
Add rest of water, which should be cold, then place bowl in fridge to cool.
When cool, put in pitcher along with other sprig of rosemary. Serve over ice.
