The Ethic (Rosemary Peach Lemonade — nonalcoholic, so good, and so right)

6 small sprigs of fresh rosemary
¾ cup sugar
1 cup water

1 ½ cups good quality peach nectar
1 cup Meyer lemon juice
1-1½ cups water

In a medium saucepan, combine rosemary sprigs, sugar, and water, and bring to a simmer. Let simmer for about 10 minutes until slightly thickened and well-infused. Remove from heat and strain. Discard rosemary sprigs and let cool to room temperature before using.

In a large pitcher, combine cooled syrup, peach nectar, and lemon juice to make concentrate. When ready to serve, add enough water (5-7 cups) to dilute to the right taste. Add ice before serving. Garnish with rosemary sprigs and fresh peach slices.
