The idea is simple: You grow what you eat, you eat what you grow. It’s smart, it’s enjoyable, it’s fresh and delicious. So why shouldn’t that also translate to cocktails around the firepit? A flavored lemonade on a hot summer day or an infused water after a long morning run? Herbs, berries and veggies aren’t just for cooking. The trendy culinary world has quickly spilled into the garden. We are now using our herbs, berries, veggies and even shrubs to highlight and enhance our cocktails, waters, teas, lemonades and ice cubes (don’t forget popsicles).
Not sure what to do with the over abundance of cucumbers. Are you only growing rosemary for roasted chicken? What about those left over violas from the early spring gardens? Become your own mixologist! Learn what to use and how to use it.
