Yield 1 mocktail
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup water
3 rosemary springs
1 tablespoon dried juniper berries
3 oz fresh squeezed clementine juice (from 3-4 clementines)
1/2 oz Rosemary Juniper Syrup (add a little less or more depending on your desired sweetness)
Orange flavored sparkling water (unsweetened, I used La Croix)
a few dashes orange bitters
Extra rosemary sprigs and slices of clementine, for garnish
Add the sugar, water, rosemary sprigs and juniper berries to a saucepan. Bring to a simmer, whisking until sugar is dissolved. Reduce heat to low and allow to steep for 20 minutes. Strain and store in a bottle in the refrigerator for up to two weeks.
In a glass or cocktail shaker, add the clementine juice and juniper syrup. Stir or shake until combined.
Pour into a serving glass (can serve on the rocks or not). Top with sparkling water and add a few dashes orange bitters. Gently stir to mix. Garnish with slices of clementine and rosemary sprigs.
