To make the rosemary syrup:
Lightly muddle the rosemary into a small pot.
Make simple home syrup in the pot (1 cup sugar, 1 cup water).
Allow to simmer slowly and reduce to a syrup (20 mins).
Do not strain and decant into a bottle.
To make the pineapple and lemongrass Juice:
Put 150 g diced pineapple into a blender, add 1 small stalk of lemongrass and ½ cup water.
