Fresh Herbs Make an Appearance in These Summertime Cocktails

July 15, 2014 3:11 pm

You often raid your windowsill herb garden for fresh seasonings for tonight’s dinner, but did you know that herbs also make a wonderful companion to your favorite liquor? Herb-infused cocktails are becoming quite a trend, and with their fresh, flavorful tastes it’s not difficult to see why. Check out these three summertime cocktails guest starring fresh herbs.

Lillet-Basil Cocktail [Martha Stewart]
Sometimes the most unlikely combinations make the very best pairings, just like the cinnamon and basil in this spicy cocktail. Lillet Blanc and gin give it its boozy buzz, while tonic water and fresh orange juice tone down the flavor. Garnish with a cinnamon stick, cucumber spear, and some bountiful basil for a light and breezy cocktail that’s ideal for Sunday brunch.

Herb-Infused Pisco Sour [Saveur]
Instead of the usual Whiskey Sour, mix things up a bit this summer with a complex Pisco Sour infused with fresh herbs. The Pisco, rosemary and mint are muddled overnight to create a deep flavor, and an egg white adds a frothy finish.

Blackberry Herb Cocktail [Epicurious]
Just like herbs come into season in the summer, plump, juicy blackberries do as well. Combine a sparkling Prosecco with blackberries and rosemary for a unique flavor that’s also cool and refreshing.
