Herbacious Happy Hours

Straight up or on the rocks? Olive or a twist? Prefer your Martini extra dirty or just “lightly scuffed?”

There are many ways to order the perfect drink, but in the Summer months, I like my cocktails garnished straight from the garden. Basil, Mint, Cilantro, Sage, Thyme, Strawberries, Sweet or Spicy Peppers, and Lemon Grass are wonderful ways to elevate an ordinary drink into a healthy and memorable cocktail.

Great-tasting, beautiful drinks don’t have to be overly complicated. Instead, try these herb infusions to brighten up your next happy hour.

  1. Lemon-Thyme Vodka Martini
  2. Strawberry-Basil Margarita
  3. Meyer Lemon & Mint Mojito
  4. Spicy Peppery Margarita

Don’t underestimate the power of a beautiful herb garnish to your drink; edible flowers will elevate your presentation in just one sip. For more great cocktail receipts, follow @drinkstagram or @onedrinkaday.
