Author Notes

This is garden living that even New Orleans and your Irish brother-in-law can get on board with. I’ve decided to call it my Garden of Good and Evil Cocktail — so good that it may just lead you to repent the next morning. Cheers! —eat-drink-garden

  4. Finish with a splash of sparkling water and garnish with one blossom and one arugula leaf.

Review
I produce the Santa Barbara based blog Eat Drink Garden. The inspiration for every meal, for every cocktail, and for every blog entry is from my garden. I learned a few years ago that if you choose seasonal fruits and vegetables, you don't need to do too much to them in order to make them beautiful and delicious every time.
