bits and bobs: summer potluck

hello!  so, we are planning to have a summer potluck today and I have a couple ideas for a fun treats.
one is grapefruit rosemary spritzer:
rosemary simple syrup:
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 5 sprigs rosemary
  • stir together first 3 ingredients in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. bring to a boil, stirring occasionally, and boil 1 minute or until sugar is dissolved. remove from heat, and let stand 30 minutes. pour liquid through a wire-mesh strainer into a cruet or airtight container, discarding rosemary sprigs. cover and chill 4 hours. garnish, if desired. syrup may be stored in refrigerator up to 1 month.
grapefruit rosemary spritzer:
  • 1 part gin
  • 2 parts grapefruit
  • 1/2 part syrup
  • 1 part tonic
  • 1 sprig rosemary
  • 1 key lime per drink
  • salt around the trim (optional)
any plans for the weekend?
