Posted: Updated:

Would a mojito or a mint julep be the same without mint? Probably not. Herbs add so much flavor to cocktails whether muddled into the drink or cooked into a syrup. The herbal flavors help round out a drink by shaping it into something that is refreshing, clean and bright. But mint isn't the only herb that can go into the making of a cocktail. Have you ever thought to try thyme, basil or even cilantro? You'd be surprised as to how well these herbs do work. Our slideshow below includes herbal cocktail recipes from across the web. We think any of them would be especially great for enjoying all summer long.
