I love this video from Amy Stewart, aka ‘The Drunken Botanist’ & popular blogger on Garden Rant about making her new cocktail garden. Just add berries for daiquiris, mint for juleps, flowers for garnish – & don’t forget the bar!
Amy’s new book, The Drunken Botanist will be published in March 2013. She’s describes it:
Who knew that horticulture was such an intoxicating subject? In this follow-up to the New York Times bestsellers ‘Wicked Bugs’ and ‘Wicked Plants’, Amy Stewart explores the odd, unusual, and surprisingly common plants that have produced the world’s greatest spirits. ‘The Drunken Botanist’ uncovers the enlightening botanical history and the fascinating science and chemistry of over 150 plants, flowers, trees, fruits, and even a few fungi. With a delightful two-color vintage-style interior, over fifty drink recipes, growing tips for gardeners, and advice that carries Stewart’s trademark wit, this is the perfect book for gardeners and cocktail aficionados alike.
