Drink: Rosemary’s Baby
From: Extra Virgin
Extra Virgin, next to Michael Smith’s in The Crossroads serves up phenomenal small plates and wonderful cocktails in its modern venue. This particular cocktail, which I enjoyed twice that night, is no exception. It doesn’t hurt that it’s named after one of my favorite films.
The drink: smooth, light, tart, sweet.
With Ford’s Gin, Mathilde Pear, lemon, and Rosemary syrup, this cocktail is light and refreshing, with a lovely herbal quality. The rosemary syrup compliments the gin while lemon gives the drink lightness. It might be the perfect cocktail for sipping on the patio in this spring weather.
