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
Juice of 6 limes~ you want about 6 ounces or 3/4 cup juice
packed arugula, plus more for garnish
gin or vodka (dealer’s choice)
St. Germain Liqueur
citrus blossoms for garnish if you've got them
In This Recipe
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.
Strain this mixture into a clean pitcher.
Stir in the booze and pour into four old-fashioned glasses filled with ice.
Finish with a splash of sparkling water and garnish with one blossom and one arugula leaf.
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.
