Because it only makes sense to follow a paleo recipe with a cocktail recipe. Naturally.
Mr. Bama is out of town for a few weeks, so after a Sunday filled with rolling up my sleeves up and deep cleaning my kitchen (a monumental task. Grime. Hides. EVERYWHERE) I took the evening to sit back and just relax. I had a pretty stressful week at work, so I did something I never do: I made myself a cocktail. And a pretty darn fantastic one at that. I'm normally a French 75 fan when I do make myself cocktail, but I decided to take advantage of the rosemary growing like crazy in my garden. I adapted an old Real Simple recipe, originally formulated to serve 8. Since I was not having a party, nor am I capable of drinking 8 servings myself (no matter how hard I may try), I adjusted the recipe down to one. Voila, new snazzy cocktail!
Rosemary Secco Spritzer

- Strain water/sugar mix into a collins or highball glass.
- Fill rest of glass with Prosecco.
- Garnish with rosemary spring and enjoy!
