Just because JOEY Restaurants got its start in Canada, that doesn't mean everything on the menu originates in the Great White North. Karen Johnston, regional manager of JOEY Restaurants for Seattle, created this cocktail in Seattle for the 2016 JALA House Party Throwdown and it's an homage to the women in our business who play a leading part in driving JOEY into the future. The cocktail was so delicious that it ended up on the menu permanently.

Rosemary is considered a symbol of women with strong will. Peach, elderflower, and bubbles all add a vibrancy to the drink.

2 sprigs rosemary
1 oz. Absolut Apeach vodka
1 1/2 oz. fresh grapefruit juice
1/2 oz. elderflower cordial
