Make the simple syrup. In a small saucepan, combine sugar, water and rosemary sprigs. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat and simmer until the sugar has dissolved, about 3 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool completely. Discard rosemary sprigs. Store in a glass container for up to 1 month.

Make the cocktail. Add simple syrup and vodka to a champagne flute. Top with champagne. Garnish with a rosemary sprig.
