Good Food Starts Here

Finally summer has arrived!  And no one loves hot humid days more than me!  One of the best parts of summer is watching the garden grow! The humidity helps the plant leaves stay nice and plump, helps bacteria to generate rich lively soil, and makes for deliciously sweet and fragrantly ripe fruit (my favorite!). So next time the heat gets to your head a little bit, and you find yourself yearning for cooler temps, stop in and give us a visit & we'll give you a taste of our favorite summer flavors and help you find reason to celebrate our favorite season!

& Let's face it, summer is the Cocktail SEASON!  Here's a recipe for one of my favorites:  

Sweet Tea Cocktail

1 1/2 oz Earl Grey infused Vodka
1 oz Earl Grey Elder Syrup
2 oz Earl Grey Iced tea
wedge of lemon
spring of lemon verbena or mint

Use a tall Collins Glass // fill 3/4 with ice
Fill a bucket with ice cubes // add the Vodka, Earl Grey Elder Syrup // Shake till chilled
strain into collins glass // squeeze wedge of lemon // top with iced tea // 
garnish with lemon verbena
