Rosemary Plum Spritz
This is probably one of the best mocktails I’ve ever created. Truly. I made it for a few friends to celebrate the end of finals and it was a HUGE hit.
The rosemary and plum are a wonderful combination, I felt like I was sipping on the essence of fall.
I was so excited about this mocktail that I even showed the reel I created for the recipe to my entire family while I was home for fall break and I promised them I would be making them the mocktail for our holiday dinners! If you want to see the “how to” reel for this mocktail, you can find it on Instagram and TikTok!
What you will need for this recipe:
4 small organic plums: get them while they’re still in season!
Rosemary: the rosemary & plum pairing MAKE this recipe. Don’t skimp on the rosemary.
Date sugar: date sugar is low on the glycemic index and it helps thicken the rosemary plum syrup. If you want to stay away from this, then you can substitute the date sugar with ¼ teaspoon of monk fruit! The syrup probably just won’t be quite as thick.
1 organic lime: you can also use lemon!
Soda water: you can also top with filtered water if you don’t enjoy carbonation.
When to make this mocktail?
- Dinner parties
- Holiday gatherings

PREP TIME: 5 MINUTES
TOTAL TIME: 25 MINUTES
For The Rosemary Plum Syrup
- 3 1/2 cups filtered water
- 4 small plums
- 2 tablespoons date sugar
For The Mocktail
- 6 ounces syrup
- Juice from 1 lime
- Top with soda water
- Garnish with plums and rosemary sprig
- First you’re going to make your rosemary plum syrup by adding 2 cups of water to a medium saucepan then bring it to a boil.
- Pit and slice your plums into chunks and add them to the water, then reduce the heat to medium-low so that the plums are simmering.
- Add the date sugar and rosemary and allow the mixture to simmer for 15 minutes, continuing to stir occasionally and adding more water if the mixture starts to stick to the bottom of the pan.
- After 15 minutes, add the remaining water and simmer/stir for 5 more minutes, then pour the syrup over a fine mesh colander into a mason jar and allow it to cool.
- To make the mocktail, add all of your ingredients (aside from the soda water) to a cocktail shaker with a little ice then shake vigorously for 20 seconds.
- Pour evenly into two chilled coup glasses then top with soda water.
- Garnish with a sprig of rosemary and thinly sliced plum wedges.
NOTE: If you have extra syrup, store it in a mason jar and use it on top of pancakes or waffles!
