My mint-infused bourbon for mint juleps was such a success, I’ve teamed up with my good friend, clinical herbalist Chin Velasquez of Soothing Herbals Apothecary to concoct a few more delicious, organic herbal infusions for drinks, both alcoholic and non.
Chin’s property is an established Botanical Sanctuary in the United Plant Savers network and is home to beds of all variety of edible and medicinal herbs she grows and harvests herself — everything from rose hips to hibiscus, from marshmallow to wild ginger. The woman knows her herbs!
This weekend I’ll be devising a tasty warm weater cocktail using the organic herbal vodka infusion above. I’m thinking a little simple syrup, a twist of lemon, maybe a splash of fizzy water….the possibilities are endless.
Can’t wait to share the results!
