Potions Class #2: I’ve got a friend with a food blog…it’s a little more than just food and recipes, it’s like a memoir paired with novelty tastes and pretty pictures. It’s called http://www.storyofakitchen.com/ (there’s an interview with the author here: http://myfriendsareawesome.com/lisa-preston-hsu-food-doctor/). Of course, I was drawn to the drinks sections. Let me make it clear, she does have alcoholic drinks amongst the selection but a good portion of them are just plain ole beverages.
I decided to brew up some of the basil lemonade (http://www.storyofakitchen.com/drink-recipes/basil-lemonade/) she has listed and so I took some of the syrup to Fion for Bobby to play with. He was excited to see the lemon-basil combo because that served as the base for one of his regular cocktails, the Cubby Blue.
And yes, I did just have the lemonade too.
