Garden to Glass Series

Ever since I took an interest in gardening and landscape design, culinary herbs always appealed to me.  I enjoyed learning about edible flowers and tried my hand at tasty treats like candied borage, nasturtium salad and floral popsicles.

As I have gotten older,  I have learned to appreciate a really good cocktail.  Last summer, I grew a handful of herbs in what I called my 'Cocktail Garden'.  Luckily, I have a few friends that enjoy being guinea pigs for my concoctions!

I decided to share this recipes in hope to inspire others to go to their own garden not just for food, but also for drinks!

Here is a list of cocktails I have brought from my garden right into my glass:

Fresh Pear Rosemary Martinis (Pitcher Recipe)

Garden Grown Thyme Limoncello

Fresh Apple-Ginger Toddy

Oregon Strawberry Mojito

Watermelon Margarita

Grapefruit Basil Martini (Gin)

Mix at your own risk!
