David Borrego is the Director of Operations at Post & Beam in Baldwin Hills. The restaurant has a sizable garden adjacent to their outdoor patio where they grow herbs, tomatoes, melons, strawberries and edible flowers. The garden, which is kept up by Geri Miller of Home Grown Edible Landscape, serves as inspiration for David’s cocktails like this Purple Basil and Mint Mojito. When you muddle the purple basil with the drink it gives it a pale purple hue that makes it extra delightful to sip on.
