Here is a fun and festive spritzer that is perfect for celebrating the Holiday season. Whether you are entertaining for NYE or a Christmas Dinner, the Rosemary Tequila Spritzer is a definite crowd pleaser!
Rosemary Tequila Spritzer
Serves: 2 PeoplePrint
For the Rosemary Simple Syrup:
- 1 cup water
- 1 cup sugar or Monk Fruit sweetener (see note)
- 2 Rosemary sprigs
For the Spritzer:
- 2 shots LALO Tequila
- 1 shot freshly squeezed orange juice
- 1 shot Rosemary Simple Syrup
- Champagne to top
- Rosemary sprigs for garnish
Make the Simple Syrup:
- Add the sugar and water to a small saucepan and bring to a boil, stirring until the sugar is dissolved. Once dissolved, set aside and add the rosemary sprigs and let it cool. Strain before using.
Make the Spritzer:
- In a cocktail shaker, combine the tequila, orange juice, simple syrup with ice and shake.
- Strain into glasses and top with champagne and a sprig of rosemary!
The recipe for the simple syrup will make more than what you need to serve two. If you are only serving two, I would half the recipe but I figure many will be making this for a group! If using Monk Fruit, this will crystallize if not used immediately. So if you want to have extra syrup on hand, I would recommend using real sugar and you can keep stored in the fridge for one month.

Hi Alex, just tested this for Christmas it’s delicious! Have a family member coming who is allergic to oranges do you think you this would be good with cranberry juice or would you do lemon?

Can I use topo Chico instead of champagne?
AlexDecember 29, 2021 at 6:48 pm
yes will be great!

Loved this drink! Will absolutely make again. We went with Hornitos Anejo that we had on hand and it paired nicely.

Really fun, don’t skimp on the rosemary garnish, it adds flavor and extra rosemary aroma! We used our leftover simple syrup for lattes for the adults and steamers for the kids the next day!

oh YUM! love the leftover ideas.
