Lemon Rosemary Drop
2 cups sugar
8 lemons, zested and juiced (plus additional lemons for garnish)
8 sprigs fresh rosemary (plus additional sprigs for garnish)
4 bottles white wine (they call for Pinot Grigio, I used Sauvignon Blanc)
Place 2 cups water, sugar, lemon zest and rosemary in a large saucepan. Bring to a boil and then let simmer until sugar dissolves. Cool 15-20 minutes, then strain out solids.
Fill a 4-6 quart drink dispenser with 4 bottles wine, juice from 8 lemons and half of the syrup to start (I ended up using 3/4 of it). Stir well then add in lemon slices and rosemary sprigs. Have an ice dispenser on hand to enjoy chilled (I didn't add it to the dispenser since I didn't want to water down the wine!)
