The refreshing drink with herbs from the garden

drink rafraîchissant aux herbes du jardin

It's hot, it's sunny! And I totally appreciate all that life brings, so much happiness!

And to refresh myself a bit, what could be better than a drink with the magnificent herbs that grow all around me!

For 1 glass

- A few Thai basil leaves

- A few mint leaves

- 8-10 raspberries

- 2 tbsp. tablespoon lemon (or lime) juice

- 1 tbsp. tablespoon maple syrup

- About 3/4 cup lemon sparkling water (or regular and add more lemon juice)


Place the Thai basil, mint and raspberries in a glass. Crush and grind well to bring out the flavors of the herbs. 

Add lemon juice and maple syrup. Mix.

Add sparkling water and enjoy in a magical setting (there is no definition for magical setting, it's the one that's magical in your head!).

*If you want to add alcohol, a little rum would be delicious!

**The flower on the drink is an edible monarda, whose delicious petals taste like sweet mint.
