Growing Cocktails

This is such a great Sunset article on growing ingredients for cocktails. Our friends love to make lemon drops and we make amazing caipirinhas with our lemons. But we haven’t used our rosemary, lemon grass or veggies in cocktails yet. This winter we will also have more lemons, Meyer lemons, grapefruit, oranges, coriander and basil. Enjoy!!

PS. We freeze our extra lemons in ice cube trays for juice and cooking, a great way to extend your lemons without the guilt of having them go bad.

PPS. A great tip for juicers at the end of the article. Reuse, reuse, reuse: Lucy takes the dried, grated fruit pulp left over from juicing and adds it to carrot cake, zucchini bread, and apple strudel.”  Thanks for the tweet Sunset!
