Rosemary Gin Spritzers


This lemon lime gin spritzer recipe makes the perfect bubbly, refreshing cocktail. Fresh lemon, quality gin, fizzy seltzer, and a fragrant rosemary garnish! 

Lemon Lime Gin Spritzers
This post has been sponsored by Schweppes®. All thoughts and opinions are my own. 

It’s cocktail time! Rosemary gin spritzer time, to be specific. Made with our very favorite Schweppes® Lemon Lime Sparkling Water and a couple other very simple ingredients.

You guys would not even believe the amount of seltzer that we consume in this household. It’s basically a food group. At least it’s not soda, am I right? 😂 Clark usually drinks plain seltzer but I like for mine to have some pizzazz. I used to make my own lemon-lime version with, you guessed it, lemon and lime juice. Which was cool except for the fact that I was constantly running out of lemons and limes and sometimes I couldn’t find any at the grocery store (it happens more than you might think.)

I never used to buy flavored seltzers because they all tasted too sweet and artificial to me. Until I found out Schweppes Sparkling Water is now available at our Walmart (which is also conveniently located 1/2 mile from our new place.) 🙌 Their lemon-lime flavor is SO bubbly, SO good, SO spot-on that I don’t even have to mess with flavoring my own seltzer anymore.

We’re officially living in the future, people.

Lemon Lime Sparking Water Can
A couple of other things about the future:

1) flavored sparkling water makes one of the best cocktail mixers ever.

2) the holidays are coming and they DON’T HAVE TO BE STRESSFUL.

First, let’s talk the cocktail situation. I stick to a pretty simple formula when it comes to making drinks. Good liquor (usually gin) + fruit juice or bitters + a bubbly mixer + an aromatic garnish. For these rosemary gin spritzers, I followed my tried-and-true method. Bombay gin + fresh lemon juice + Schweppes Lemon Lime Sparkling Water + rosemary sprigs. Voila! Classy, sophisticated, and refreshing. You, my friend, can achieve cocktail hero status with minimal effort and zero stress.

And secondly, let’s talk about the idea of simplifying the holidays. After last year, I made a decision to chill the heck out. I always tend to get way too stressed and put too much pressure on myself during this season.

Repeat after me: You cannot do everything. You cannot be everywhere. You cannot overcommit. You can do enough and you can definitely be happy with that. You can choose to eliminate all of the driving around, the traffic, and the long lines. You can go to Walmart and get everything you need for these cocktails, plus casserole and dessert ingredients, and decor, and gifts, too. Do what you can and savor the time you save.

How to Make Batch Rosemary Gin Spritzers

I wrote this recipe for just one cocktail. But if you plan to serve a crowd, simply multiply the ice, gin, and lemon juice by the number of people who will be drinking. Then top with seltzer and add garnishes to individual glasses.

    I love the herbal notes you get from rosemary and especially in a cocktail! If you have some leftover rosemary try this grapefruit rosemary mojito. Cheers!

  • this is my idea of a drink!

    I loves me some gin, and the combination with lemon and rosemary sound just about perfect. It’s also a really beautiful drink. I think the piney sprigs of rosemary make it a perfect holiday cocktail.

    I have never been a gin fan….but….this would work with vodka!! The aroma would be fantastic….lemon and rosemary pair so well together.

    Mmm I love this flavor of Schweppe’s! I’m not a gin fan but would sub this with vodka and that sounds delicious with a sprig of rosemary – a perfect, light holiday cocktail!

      You could definitely swap in vodka for gin – it won’t affect the taste much at all. Enjoy!
