1/3 cup granulated sugar
1 cup cosmopolitan non-alcoholic cocktail mix
1 cup vodka
1/2 cup refrigerated no-pulp orange juice

1. In small saucepan, heat rosemary, sugar and 1/2 cup water over medium heat 5 minutes or until sugar dissolves, stirring frequently; remove from heat and let stand 15 minutes. Remove and discard rosemary sprigs; transfer to bowl and refrigerate 20 minutes or up to 2 days. Makes about 1/2 cup.
