Sundy House Introduces Garden Fresh Cocktails (Recipe)

Historic Sundy House has just created a new use for items in your garden -- turn them into cocktails.

Starting this week, the restaurant will feature a different weekly cocktail, made with fresh ingredients found in the Sundy House garden.

Each cocktail is created by Sundy House beverage manager Michael Richards, working closely with executive chef Lindsay Autry.

"The gardens at Sundy House are filled with beautiful, unusual flowers and fruits that make for interesting and deliciously different cocktails," chef Autry said.

The first cocktail, available now through Sunday, is the Grove Street, made from vodka infused in-house with ginger flowers. The Grove Street is $11, but try one during happy hour (Tuesday - Thursday from 5 - 9 p.m.) and the drink is $7. A new cocktail will be introduced each Tuesday.

Here's the recipe, if you want to try it at home:
