Drinking the Farmer’s Market: The Strawberry Mule

August 17th, 2013 - posted under: The Food » Recipes

Man, this summer project has been fun! Drawing on the freshest, most exciting produce of the season and infusing it into organic, artisinal liquors has turned out to be one of my very favorite “kitchen witch” crafts.
