Herbs: They’re Not Just For Cooking

As we all face the end of summer, now is the perfect opportunity to take advantage of all fresh herbs from your garden, local farmer’s market or even your go-to supermarket. Yes, basil makes a killer pesto, and mint is perfect with watermelon and feta, but our leafy green friends make just as big of a flavor statement when paired with vodka, rum, and gin. In honor of More Herbs, Less Salt Day, here are some of our favorite herb-inspired cocktails. Cheers!
