DRINK YOUR HERBS!

Spring is upon us, which means herb’s the word. Fresh herbs are delicious and nutritious…we all know that. So many ways to use ‘em, but we generally stick to the tried-and-tested. Why not branch out a little with your mean lean greens? And by that we really mean…why not use ‘em to infuse your booze?

Here are some of our absolute favorite ways to use fresh-picked herbs at your next spring soiree. A little unexpected, a LOT of delicious. Merry mixing.
