Crave something new in drink mixers for your favorite mocktail? Want to experiment with tonics and syrups? Go wild.

Gardeners – learn how to add some muddled flowers (rose geranium, anyone?) to flavor up your favorite drink. Herb lovers – create something new from your herb beds (think health and wellness, and digestion).
