Taos Sun Setter


Relax and enjoy your Taos Sunsetter in the evenings as the sun is setting and the sky is glowing. You can prepare the Rosemary Syrup in advance and keep in the refrigerator for a week or so. Also, if blood oranges are hard for you to come by – navel oranges are also delicious.

  • 2 cups Water
  • 1 cup / 6.5 oz Sugar
  • 4 tablespoons (~2 sprigs-worth) fresh rosemary leaves
  • Blood oranges
  • Gin
  • Ice cubes
  • Tonic or Sparkling water


Combine the water, sugar and rosemary in a small saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a simmer for 3-5 minutes, or long enough for the sugar to dissolve, stirring occasionally. Remove from the heat and let infuse for 10 minutes. Strain into a jar to cool completely. In the meantime, juice and strain your oranges, you’ll need 3 tablespoons of juice for each drink.

To make each drink combine equal parts gin, juice, and tonic water with a bit of syrup and ice. So, its 3 tablespoons gin, 3 tablespoons freshly squeezed blood orange juice, and 1-2 teaspoons of the Rosemary Syrup in each glass. Stir to combine, fill each glass 2/3 full with ice and top off with 3 tablespoons tonic water. Stir again and you’re ready to enjoy the Taos Sunsetter.
