I had a great time at the garden conference this year. I enjoyed all the classes. The last one was on Cocktails from the garden. Super fun- we tasted several cocktail that the speaker made for us. Some with alcohol some without. I love discovering new ways to use herbs from the garden.
We purchased the ingredients to make this arugula martini. It calls for Scottish gin. Hendrix is the brand name. Really interesting gin as it
Infused with Cucumber and rose petals.
1 cup (loosely packed) baby arugula plus additional for garnish
4 1/2 tsp dark agave nectar
4 1/2 tsp fresh lime juice
1/2 cup Hendrick's Gin
Combine 1 cup arugula, agave nectar, and lime juice in cocktail shaker. Using muddler or long-handled wooden spoon, mash until arugula is wilted, at least 1 minute. Add gin. Fill cocktail shaker with ice cubes. Cover and shake briefly to chill. Strain into 2 small rocks glasses filled with ice cubes. Garnish drinks with arugula leaves.
Yield: 2 drinks
