Garden of Good and Evil Cocktail

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!


Makes: 4 cocktails


  • Juice of 6 limes~ you want about 6 ounces or 3/4 cup juice
  • 1/2 cup packed arugula, plus more for garnish
  • 6 ounces gin or vodka (dealer’s choice)
  • 3 ounces St. Germain Liqueur
  • sparkling water
  • citrus blossoms for garnish if you've got them
In This Recipe


  1. Blend the juice and arugula in a blender until the arugula is finely chopped — the color of the liquid will be a beautiful shade of green.
  2. Strain this mixture into a clean pitcher.
  3. Stir in the booze and pour into four old-fashioned glasses filled with ice.
  4. Finish with a splash of sparkling water and garnish with one blossom and one arugula leaf.
