Herb Infused Cocktails

Happy happy Friday!  This weekend is supposed to be quite nice here in Charlotte so I have plans to do some planting of some things.  I intend to do a wide pot full of herbs again this year because I discovered that I made good use of the ones I planted last year. This year I am going to plant peppermint and lavender in their own separate pots and then parsley, basil, and rosemary all together again.  I don’t expect to use the rosemary much but I still have a super cute herb marker from last year for it so I figured why not?  I thought it might be fun to share some of the recipes I wanted to try with them this year and since it is Friday, I figured I better just go on ahead and discuss some cocktail type herb uses because I bet we could all use one.  There is nothing like fresh herbs to make a cocktail feel a little more special and taste extra fresh.  Here are some of the cocktails I would like to make using my herbs this year…

Basil French 75

Lavender Lemonade

Elderflower Mint Margarita

Also, here is a little tip for how to trim your basil so it keeps growing all summer.

If those aren’t good motivation to make an herb garden, then I just don’t know what is.  Have a lovely weekend!
