Turn over a New Leaf
Over the year of 2018, I got into gardening and had a pretty successful herbal garden. Introducing fresh herbs to your meals is a great way to promote health in your life. They are known for aiding digestion, anti-inflammatory properties and a good source for vitamins. I started adding fresh herbs to all my dishes for the added benefit of flavor, color and nutrients.
Herbal Cocktail Sampler
Create cocktails or mocktails with fresh herbs to add a sophisticated flavor and aroma to your happy hour. This pharmacopeia includes cocktail recipes using sage, mint, basil and rosemary (don’t worry, no controversial cilantro or parsley infused cocktails here).

I mailed my Samplers out to clients, colleagues, friends and strangers over the holidays. If you want one, they are available for purchase.

I was inspired to make the Herbal Cocktail Sampler by my other series of Lettered Beverages. It was a great exercise in breaking down recipes to the simplest form in order to hand-letter it with more style and detail.
I love playing with the layout by using blocks of color to help organize the recipe and allows me to play with different lettering styles without looking too disjointed. It also gives it an more fun and colorful look.
I chose these recipes because they are my personal favorites. These recipes are altered to include fresh herbs, but it seems they should have always included fresh herbs. That just goes to show you that you can take your own favorite cocktail recipe to experiment with adding fresh herbs to make a new favorite cocktails.
