Turns out, the best apples for eating also make for great drinking. As evidence, this infusion features a combination of sweet honeycrisp apples and fresh rosemary.
To start, let’s make sure you have all the needed ingredients: 2 honeycrisp apples, 1 rosemary sprig (about 6-inches long), 10 oz. Everclear®, 10 oz. filtered water and 4 oz. white simple syrup. If you don’t have simple syrup on hand and want to make your own, check out our simple syrup instructions.
Core and chop both apples into smaller chunks. Then combine your chopped apples, rosemary and Everclear® in a large, sealable container and let steep in a cool, dry place for 48 hours, shaking once each day.
Once steeped, strain out the apples and rosemary using a fine mesh strainer or cheesecloth.
Add water and simple syrup, mixing thoroughly. Then bottle and enjoy.
