Q.

I’m trying to make borage-infused alcohol, what aromatics can I pair with it?

A.

We haven’t tried infusing borage blossoms in alcohol, so we’re not sure how much flavor will be pulled from the flowers and whether some aspects will be more prominent than others.

Assuming (for the purpose of suggestions) that the borage’s mild cucumber-esque flavor does come through, we’d suggest using that as your guide and looking at aromatics that are paired with cucumber in cocktails.

Here are some ideas:

Allspice
Citrus (Lemon, Lime, or Grapefruit)
Cucumber (to amp up the flavor & make it more “borage-y”)
Juniper Berries/Gin
Peppercorns
Spearmint
