One of our most plentiful herbs growing at the Wainer Family Farm is Peruvian Black Mint. It is easily identifiable by its thin, dark leaves with pronounced ridges. The flavor is noticeably sharper than traditional mint with notes of basil, tarragon, mint, and lime.
In Peruvian cuisine, the mint is typically used as a condiment on soups and stews. It also complements herb marinades for poultry and seafood. Today, however, we are using it in a cocktail to showcase its effervescent qualities and herbaceous aroma.
