Trailing Rosemary provides the classic, deep and delicious flavour of Rosemary. Chefs that we have worked with at food festivals have remarked that the flavour seems more succulent and tender from the slightly softer young stems of this plant. The young trailing stems look really attractive as decoration atop a summer cocktail. If you enjoy making herb-flavoured cocktails here are some other herbs you might enjoy!
