Garden to Glass Cocktails and a Guest Post

By Estelle Hayes

I few weeks back I mentioned this story in the Wall Street Journal about garden-inspired cocktails. It just so happened my husband and I had just tasted a couple of Manresa’s creations that use herbs and honey from their farm to infuse their signature drinks. I’ve been experimenting ever since. Some with alcohol, some with club soda and some concoctions have simply been frozen in ice cube trays in preparation for our next heat wave.

My hands-down favorite has been a combination of fresh mint, lime and blackberries all muddled together for a delightful mojito. I’m sharing the recipe and some 4th of July menu ideas over at The Post Social. Won’t you join me? Check out my take on the classic Portobello mushroom burger with fava bean puree and an Asian-inspired cole slaw. And do let me know if you’re mixing any garden-inspired cocktails these days.
