A little something to brighten your day: we're here to help you plan the perfect Mother's Day brunch that packs a punch with a special signature drink or 3.  
We were inspired by our savory chef’s lively herbs pack and our Tuscan Blue Rosemary and a few herb friends to create plant-inspired drinks that are just as beautiful as they are refreshing and are sure to be loved by mom. Our Chef's Lively Herbs 4-Pack consists of fresh Thyme, Parsley, Basil, and Oregano! These herbs are perfect for infusing into drinks like lemonade or iced tea. We love using them to add zest to cocktail recipes as well!  Our French thyme and African Blue Basil will prove to be a great addition to your collection of herbs and spices too. 
Thyme and Basil are the hardest-working spices in your kitchen. We love how pretty they are, but more importantly, we love how they elevate dishes with their natural flavor. So naturally, we wanted to incorporate them into our drinks! They're not only decorative-they enhance drinks by adding a fresh, but herbal note also that makes everything taste better.


Lemon Refresher

Herb-Infused Lemon Refresher Recipe (serves 8)

  •     Lively Root French Thyme & African Blue Basil

Tuscan Blue Rosemary is one of the most versatile herbs in the kitchen, and it has a long history of medicinal uses as well. It's beloved for its distinctive flavor that adds an intense aromatic quality to any dish. Rosemary is also a delicious addition to any cocktail or beverage. The intense aroma can be used to add depth to many different recipes—from cookies to cakes—and it also makes a beautiful garnish for any drink.
