Rosemary syrup anchors this easy-to-make highball.

This highball from Sylvain matches earthy cachaça with sweet sloe gin.


  • 1 oz. cachaça
  • 1 oz. sloe gin
  • 1 oz. fresh lime juice
  • 1/2 oz. rosemary syrup
  • Club soda, to top
  • Tools:shaker, strainer
  • Glass:Collins
  • Garnish:rosemary sprig


Shake all the ingredients. Strain into a Collins glass. Top with soda, then garnish.

Rosemary SyrupStir together 2 cups of sugar, 1 cup of water and a handful of fresh rosemary sprigs in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Bring to a boil, stirring occasionally, and boil 1 minute or until the sugar is dissolved. Remove from heat and let stand 30 minutes. Pour the liquid through a wire-mesh strainer into an airtight container, discarding the rosemary. Cover and chill for 4 hours. Store in refrigerator up to 2 weeks.
