High Atlas Alcohol Free Rosemary Citrus Spritzer

Rosemary and I have an off and on relationship. Sometimes I can’t get enough of it, while other times I can’t stand it. I think it’s similar for many people. However in this alcohol free cocktail it really is delightful.

2020 has been a weird year however it’s introduced me to a lot of people and resources I might not have ever found. One of them is fresh boxes of organic herbs and vegetables that come from a farm outside of Marrakech. The owner is also from Michigan (we all have a weird way of finding each other) and takes so much pride in what he does.

Rosemary is something finds its way to my vegetable delivery regularly. It grows well here – Mediterranean climates is where it thrives. Suffice to say I don’t like the texture of rosemary in my food but the flavor that gets imbued into the syrup of this drink is perfect.

Citrus is the other element and while this recipe uses oranges – which also are plentiful and grow well in Morocco – you could use any citrus you’d like. Lemons would work as would grapefruit though you may want to adjust sugar levels if you’re using a more tart fruit.
