1. Wash hands with soap and water. 


2. Rinse all fresh produce items under cold running water prior to prepping. 


3. Preheat grill to medium-high. 


4. Place 1/4 cup sugar in a shallow dish. Cut lemons in half and dip them in the sugar, cut-side-down. Place lemons, cut-side-down, on grill and cook for 5 minutes or until they are tender and start to caramelize with nice grill marks. Remove from grill and let cool.  


5. In a medium saucepan over medium heat, combine water, honey, rosemary sprigs and remaining sugar; bring to a low rolling boil. Let boil, stirring occasionally, for 7 minutes or until sugar and honey dissolves creating a syrup; remove from heat and discard rosemary sprigs. Let cool. 


6. When lemons are cool to the touch, squeeze juice into a mesh colander over a pitcher. Add cooled syrup and water to taste and stir well. Serve over ice.
