Cocktail of the Week: The Last Hurrah

I don't cotton to the idea that one can't drink a gin and tonic after Labor Day.  But if you're a stickler and still need your gin fix, here's the solution.  I call it The Last Hurrah...a perfect end-of-summer cocktail.

The Last Hurrah
Makes one cocktail.

1 1/2 ounces gin
3/4 ounce Cointreau (or triple sec)
3/4 ounce rosemary simple syrup
3/4 ounce freshly squeezed lemon juice

Combine all ingredients in an ice-filled cocktail shaker.  Shake vigorously and strain into a cocktail glass. Garnish with a rosemary sprig if you're feeling snooty.
