Drinking with Herbs: Herb Infused Wine

Herb Infused Wine, oh how I love Thee...let me count the ways. Haha.
Sometimes you can mix herbs and more conventional things, like wine. 
Here I infused some Riesling with Damiana and Rose. 
Taste? Light and delicious - I love Riesling.
Prep time? 5 minutes...or less
Cook time? None....it's a waiting game. You wait 7 days, no more than 12 or so, otherwise your wine won't taste too good.
Equal parts Damiana and Rose (I used 1/4 cup of each)
1 bottle of white wine (I used Riesling)
  1. Add Damiana and Rose to a mason jar or other bottle.
  2. Add 750 ml of wine
  3. Store in the fridge for 7 days, shake once a day.
  4. Taste after 7 days. If ok, strain herbs and drank. If not ok, leave herbs and taste daily until it has your desired flavor. 

You can add  rose or hibiscus. Be careful with really aromatic herbs (mint, chamomile, lavender) because they're quite strong and can easily overpower your wine. There you go -- Another great way to add herbs into your diet...this is recreational and herb infused wine should not be considered  health regimen. Be smart yo.
