Hey friends, I'm back with another refreshing mocktail recipe (did you miss last week's Blackberry Ginger Cooler?). Cocktail hour is pretty dang popular, so I thought I should create some fun drinks that the whole family can enjoy. And it's A OKAY to sip this drink every hour of the day. Feel free to spike it if you want, but I think this is going to be your new favorite drink! I'm such a fan of fresh herbs paired with fruit. Sweet pineapple and the warm, woodsy notes of rosemary go perfectly together. I love sips and bites that make you stop and say, "Ooh, what is that?". This easy to make drink, will have your guests asking that very question.
Pineapple Rosemary Spritzer
2 cups of pineapple juice
1/2 cup of rosemary simple syrup

In a pitcher, combine the chilled pineapple juice and rosemary simple syrup. Fill each glass with ice. Fill the glass half full with the pineapple juice mixture and then top off with club soda. Garnish each glass with a sprig of fresh rosemary and a wedge of pineapple on the rim of the glass.
This recipe make 4-6 servings, depending on size of your glasses.
