Rosemarino Cocktail

Beautiful dried citrus wheels inspired this tart fall cocktail that is balanced by savory, woody rosemary and just a hint of sea salt. The bold color and crisp bite will brighten up any holiday gathering. And – a welcome bonus – it is easy to make.

2 ounces fresh ruby red grapefruit juice 
1 1/2 ounces vodka 
1/2 small lemon, juiced
1/4 ounce agave syrup
2 small sprigs of rosemary
dash of sea salt 
dried grapefruit wheel, for garnish

1. Fill a small cocktail shaker with ice. Pour in the grapefruit juice, vodka, lemon juice and agave. Gently crush one rosemary sprig between your fingers and add to the shaker along with a dash of salt. Put on the lid and shake vigorously for about 20 seconds. Strain into a martini glass and garnish with a dried grapefruit wheel and remaining sprig of rosemary. Serve immediately. Makes 1 serving.
