Her most recent post, Spank Me Like a Sprig of Mint, suggests that one punish one's herbs before adding them to one's cocktails. I tried this last night before dunking some fresh basil into to my Citron vodka and Crystal Light lemonade concoction. I spanked it so hard, my hand literally started to sting. But, mmmm, was it ever worth the effort! And, oh my, you should have heard the double entendres fly! The cocktail hour was never quite so fun.
