This drink brings back good memories. It's lemony, light, tangy and extremely refreshing. Serve over crushed ice on a warm summer's day.

You'll need to adjust the sugar to your own taste preference; I cut it back quite a bit, since we like the tartness of fresh lemons. In Florida, we drink what some consider "summer drinks" all year, so this will be showing up in this house quite often. Rosemary can be a powerful herb, but it partners well with the fresh lemons in this drink and does not overwhelm. FYI this took 8 lemons. Very nice.-21 Feb 2015
