Recipe courtesy of Chasity Marini. The fresh rosemary in the shaker will bruise and release its aromatic essential oils into the drink. Save a pretty piece of one for garnish!

This recipe is good. Make it with sweet red vermouth, not dry white vermouth. The recipe does not specify the type of vermouth, but the color of the picture gives some context. I made it with white vermouth first. It was too sweet and needed more gin and extra bitters. The next time, I made it with sweet vermouth and added a little more gin. It was much better. Because the simple syrup makes a lot, I will make it again and try to refine it.
