Rosemary Simple Syrup

This rosemary simple syrup is delicious and a great substitute for sugar. I love to add it to freshly squeezed lemonade or make a punch out of it!

1 cup raw honey
1 cup purified water
6 sprigs fresh rosemary

Add the honey and water to a medium sized pot and bring to a boil, stirring occasionally.
When mixture comes to a boil, add the rosemary sprigs and reduce heat to a simmer.
Let the rosemary steep for about 20-30 minutes. The longer you let it steep, the stronger the rosemary will become.
Let the mixture cool and refrigerate overnight.
After the mixture is cooled, add it as you would any sweetener to tea, lemonade or punch.

Hint: Substitute any herb in place of the rosemary and make a delicious, herbaceous simple syrup.
