Summer is serious cocktail season!

You know how I love concocting flirty  little cocktails with an herbaceous  twist, right?


How can I not  with our kitchen gardens overflowing with tasty fresh herbs. I’ve planted an almost



entirely edible landscape! I have to find creative ways to use what we sow. Delicious herbaceous cocktails



work for me!

Remember my  Girls Night In Lavender Martini Drops and Lemon Thyme Drops?

They have one thing in common…

simple syrups with an herbaceous  twist straight from my garden. 

That’s why I fell in love with this earthy read on the New York Times best sellers list.



‘The Drunken Botanist’ by Amy Stewart, is a fun and informative  look at ‘the plants that create the world’s

great drinks!’ And now Ms. Stewart has created a collection of cocktail friendly




herbs and fruits in a handy plant- six pack! I stumbled onto them

at Metropolitan Market! Of course the Mixologist’s Simple Syrups combo pack caught my eye!



Lavender, Angelica, Rose Scented Geranium, Anise Hyssop, Orange Mint and more!

I have sweet plans for these little plants. I’m pulling together a glam  little cocktail only  herb garden




and you can too! Cocktail dress required.

I’ll be back with the DIY, soon!
