We have an un-named drink composed of tonic, gin, damiana liqueur and a sprig of slightly muddled sweet basil. Proportions are, of course, to taste ;) but in general make like a gin and tonic.

I make a kefir ginger ale using filtered water, a little bit of honey, 2 dried figs, fresh ginger and turmeric and my happy kefir grains. It has become our evening 'cocktail' to have with dinner. By the way, it is fabulous in supporting digestion! Such a win/win for our family to have a delicious, nutritious, digestion supporting cocktail. I have made videos that share my recipes on youtube. Here's a link to follow to the page. http://www.youtube.com/user/TeamingWithNature Also on facebook at http://www.facebook.com/pages/Teaming-With-Nature-Improve-healthvitality-in-the-body-home-and-garden/303430536941 Peace, Will Teaming with Nature

I love to put fresh mint in a few of my favorite warm weather libations---one being Mojitos and the second being Mint Juleps----as an option to using rum for the Mojitos and Bourbon for the Juleps--I have found one company that produces several varities of legal moonshine----The Piedmont Distillery out of North Carolina makes a few versions of what they are marketing as moonshine---the one I use is the regular version of their Junior Johnson's Midnight Moon moonshine---it is made from corn grain but not flavored in barrels to make Bourbon or Whiskey--so it is the process used to make 'Shine! Midnight Moon has a very clean and "fresh" taste to me---a nice alternative to using rum, gin or vodka in drinks like those mixed with tonic and it does make a great mojito--I did subumit recipes to them for my versions of a Mojito and Mint Julep using that product--I call mine Junior's Julep and Midnight Mountain Mojito both being on their website---the product is not available everywhere yet---mostly in the southern states--but if you can find it--I urge ya to buy and try it for a different take on these drinks.
