I think you all know that rosemary is my better half at this point. I really do put it in everything. And since I doubt Greg will closely read this, I can let you know, I am naming my goat 'Rosemary'. Wait, did I just say goat? Yes. Operation Strong Arm (better known as: OSA) is re-comencing

I know, I know. I offically get the bad wife award, but if Greg had his say in it, we'd never have goats, and that just isn't an option for me. I am a firm believer in compromise, and since he is getting a new truck before I get a new car (something that wasn't in our game plan), I think it's only fair that I get goats... New truck = goats. Right? 

Anyways, I am on a goat tangent - let's talk about greyhounds. They are delicious, refreshing, and one of my favorite cocktails! This version incorporates a faint flavor of rosemary, and is the perfect cocktail to whip up this weekend. 

To juice the rosemary, you can use one of those lemon juicers, or a beater from an electric mixer. If you go with option 2, you'll need to strain the juice through some cheese cloth to get rid of seeds. Hint - get the cheese cloth wet with water before using it, or the grapefruit juice will simply sit on top of the cloth.
