My garden is totally out of control this year. Everything has grown in so well and it looks (and smells) incredible. During my recent grocery trip, I even realized I barely needed to buy any veggies! With so many unexpected ingredients to choose from, I asked our resident cocktail expert to dream up a cocktail that would use flavors from my garden. Rocky whipped together this apple & lavender mojito recipe and it was an immediate hit with me and Sean. The cocktail is so refreshing and just a bit dangerous because it doesn’t tasty boozy at all! I loved garnishing it with lavender and Kentucky sweet mint from my garden, too.
