I’ve been meaning to come up with a cocktail with my delicious gifties from the @barfaith
giveaway a few weeks back (thank you both, still can’t believe I won (eeek!) coz I never win anything) but I couldn’t think of anything creative…until now. My inspiration: Lemon Verbena.
My LV plant is going completely nutso in the garden and needed to be trimmed back, so I dried most of it for future curries and cocktails and the rest of the fresh sprigs will be used in my morning tea and bubble water. It also became the star of this riff on a Gimlet, along with the Royal Rose Ginger-Lime Syrup (which is the perfect amount of “sweet” btw), and @vivacity_fine_spirits
Native Gin--a beautiful gin from Oregon that leads with floral and botanical notes, making it ideal for this drink as it won’t overpower the delicate lemon verbena. All the perfect heady aromatics and cooling flavors for a hot summer night. Cheers!
