Cocktail of the Week: Rosemary-Citrus Martini

I make a drink I call the Rosemary Collins with rosemary-infused simple syrup and lemon juice.  That one calls for club soda, but this one kicks up the octane level into a martini.  Cheers!

Rosemary-Citrus Martini
Makes one cocktail.

1 1/2 ounces gin (Bombay Sapphire, of course)
3/4 ounce Cointreau (or triple sec)
3/4 ounce rosemary simple syrup (Easy to make...just steep a branch or two of rosemary in still hot simple syrup.)
3/4 ounce freshly squeezed lemon juice

Shake all ingredients together in an ice-filled shaker.  Strain into a cocktail glass and garnish with a lemon twist.
