Hey there,

creative gal!

You’ve landed on a post I wrote a few years ago -
back when I was known as The Dabblist and was exploring all sorts of ways I could create beautiful things with my hands. It was a powerful time for me — awakening my creativity after suppressing it for so long — but this space has since evolved to reflect the woman I’m becoming.

I included garden wine in the cocktail portion of my most recent creative day retreat at my cozy cottage {along with dark chocolate covered strawberries, apples, and almond butter of course}, and was surprised by how delighted the women were with the idea. It's a total sensory experience.

The concept is simple, but lovely - add herbs to wine.

Garden Wine

I grabbed herbs from my garden - sage, rosemary, lemon balm, purple basil, and lemon verbena. But you could also try lavender, roses, calendula, or thyme.

Add the herbs to the wine {I find that common garden herbs marry well with a crisp, white wine}, either in the wine bottle or in a separate bottle (like these beautiful swing-tops). Reseal the bottle and let it sit a few days before serving chilled.
