We made it to Friday which most certainly calls for a drink! But first, I wanted to share my favorite herbs that I plant every single year and how to cook (or drink) with them.
Here are some of my favorites and what to pair them with when you’re cooking or drinking:
Rosemary: I always throw this in when I make a roast. When you cook lamb, pork, chicken or roasted veggies this is your go to. Also I love this for drinks too! Back in March I did a Martini Moment where I made an apple, pear, and rosemary simple syrup. So delish!
Basil: pairs with tomatoes, seafood and really any kind of meat. I like to make pesto with it and use a little in my pasta sauce.
Mint: This is my favorite to throw in my summer drinks. Adds so much freshness! It also pairs well with fruits, veggies and lamb.
Oregano: Use this one with anything! Meats, fish, or veggies.
Parsley: This is a great garnish if you need a finishing touch. Mine is “curly parsley” which is best used for this. Think some color on your potatoes.
Now on to our drink for the week! I was so excited to make this one for you guys because it is my summer staple! Obviously mine is a mocktail but it works both ways and it so refreshing either way.
This has been my drink for so many years so I hope you make it and love it as much as I do!
