3179 patchouli


Like wow, Cat.  It is time to embrace your inner hippie and light a Patchouli candle and chill.  It will be like a groovy flashback to the 60’s.

3182 patchouli drink

This fun cocktail uses yummy stuff in the hippie fashion of just throwing things together and taking life easy.  So, as a tribute to flower power, pull out your brightest colored accessories and get into it.


The Hippie Nectar is mixed in a Mason jar so you can hit the road as the mood moves you.  A little fresh mint to enhance the herbal quality can’t hurt.   To make the neon colored ice, I froze Kool- Aid powder mixed with water (skip the sugar) in ice cube trays.   For a little psychedelic punch, I dipped the rims of the glasses in corn syrup and then rimmed them in pop rocks.  This is sure to blow their minds.

3189 patchouli veggies

Now pull out the lava lamp and put on a little Janice Joplin or Jimi Hendrix and get down with it.  For the munchies, I think a chocolate brownie with a bit of herb (mint) in it would be far out.  And a bowl of fresh vegetables straight from the garden would be killer.
