    Rosemary-Citrus Parfait

    "You'll make more rosemary syrup than you need, but it's great to have extra on hand. It keeps well in the refrigerator, where it will last for 2 to 3 weeks. Molly suggests stirring some into club soda to make a rosemary soda, and mix with vodka or gin for a cocktail. Or, she suggests, "If you have a clean yard with freshly fallen snow, you can put some in a cup and drizzle the syrup over it" for a homemade snow cone. "That's really, really tasty," she says. You can also share the syrup with someone on your holiday gift list; attach a card with suggestions for how to use it."


    1 cup sugar
    1 cup water
    4 rosemary sprigs
    1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice

    4 cups plain 2% reduced-fat Greek yogurt
    2 large navel oranges, peeled and cut into segments
    2 blood oranges, peeled and cut into segments
    4 mandarin oranges, peeled and cut into segments
    2 red grapefruit, peeled and cut into segments
    Rosemary sprigs (optional)

    How to Make It

    1. To prepare rosemary syrup, combine sugar, water, and rosemary sprigs in a saucepan; bring to a boil over medium-high, stirring occasionally to dissolve sugar. Boil for 5 minutes. Cool; discard rosemary sprigs. Stir in lemon juice.
    2. To prepare parfaits, spoon 1/2 cup yogurt into each of 8 glasses; top evenly with citrus sections. Drizzle 2 teaspoons rosemary syrup over each parfait. Garnish with rosemary sprigs, if desired.
