Katrina's Inspiration

"I sent my sweet husband, Jay, to buy some organic herbs for our new rooftop garden. I would likely have come home with Italian or Thai basil but he snooped out more rare leaves – African blue basil a robust strong basil with notes of camphor and mini Cuban basil that is a stronger more potent version of sweet basil."


  • 1. Make simple syrup by combining 1 part sugar to 1 part boiling water, stirring until sugar is dissolved.
  • 2. Infuse simple syrup with cocoa nibs, basil or experiment with your own herbal tincture!
  • 3. In a rocks glass, muddle fresh, juicy nectarines and strawberries.
  • 4. Add a splash of Campari, large ice cubes and top with soda water.
  • 5. Sprinkle organic geranium petals atop for garnish.
  • 6. Enjoy this Strawberry Nectarine Geranium Cocktail paired with our Cherry Rooibos Chocolate Bar containing African rooibos tea.
