1 cup fresh lemon juice
1 cup sugar
2 rosemary sprigs, plus 8 sprigs for garnish
1/2 cup vodka
club soda or seltzer, cold
Combine lemon juice, sugar and 2 rosemary sprigs in a small saucepot. Bring to a boil, stirring until sugar has dissolved, then reduce the heat and simmer for 2 minutes. Turn off the heat and cool completely, about 1 hour. Discard rosemary sprigs.
Fill 8 8-oz drinking glasses half-way with ice. Divide the lemon syrup among the glasses, 2 tablespoons per glass. Add 1 tablespoon of vodka to each glass. Top off each glass with the club soda/seltzer. Garnish each glass with a rosemary sprig.
