To make the Date Tequila:
Cut 12 dates in half, removing the pit from each one, and add to large resealable glass jar (I used something like this.) Add one 750mL bottle of white tequila to jar, seal, and let sit for at least five days (up to 10 days) before enjoying.
To make the Rosemary Simple Syrup:
Combine one cup granulated sugar, one cup water and one large sprig of fresh rosemary in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil and let simmer until sugar dissolves. Remove from heat and cool before using a funnel to pour syrup into a glass bottle with a stopper for storage. Refrigerate up to one week.
