Cocktails can be the gateway to a more enlightened experience, an invitation to decompress, and a reason to mix things up. Taste buds are in a constant state of evolution, and introducing them to new flavors, including more health-conscious cocktails, can inspire a refreshing alternative. This spring, drink slinger Pamela Wiznitzer created an herbaceous cocktail that welcomes a new season.

“The beauty of this cocktail is that most of the green elements can be grown at home with hydroponic systems,” says Wiznitzer. “Growing your own Ingredients and garnishes makes for more sustainable drinking and has the bonus of reducing some of our carbon footprint.”
