Rosemary Pineapple Punch

We welcomed a group of herbal enthusiasts from Ohio this week, and provided a few tasty treats to enjoy under the pavilion on a warm spring (almost summer like) evening. We  served a true Rosemary House original and an all around favorite, Rosemary Pineapple Punch. This is a refreshing drink to quench the thirst on a warm summer's eve. The unique flavor of rosemary offers a delightful balance to the pineapple juice. Jillian, our youngest tea room hostess, cheerfully offered punch to the out-of-state visitors. We're happy to share the recipe here.
Rosemary Pineapple Punch
1/3 c. dried rosemary
2 c. water
1 - 46 oz. can pineapple juice
2 liters lemon-lime soda
1 liter ginger ale
Boil the water, remove from heat, add rosemary and steep for 30 minutes.
Strain. Chill. Add chilled rosemary tea to pineapple juice and let flavors blend overnight. Just before serving, add chilled lemon-lime soda and ginger ale. Pour into large pitcher or punch bowl. 
Yield: 5 quarts

We loved our time there. The punch was delicious. I would like the recipe for the spread for the crackers. Delicious

The Madison Herb Society had a fantastic time visiting on Friday the 6th. The refreshments were yummy. Thanks for posting the delicious punch recipe. For many of us this was a return to a dear herb shop...for others it was their first visit. We all had a delightful time. Can you share the delicious sweet bread recipe ?

We will be back.

It may seem strange, but I have not ever liked rosemary until this past year. Suddenly I am enjoying it used several ways. This punch would be yummy!
