Grow your own garnish for custom craft cocktails with Shimo!

One of the best things about Shimo is that you can use you can grow your own garnish to create one-of-a-kind custom craft cocktails. 

Recently, Shimo worked with mixologist Sunny Kim from the Canopy Hilton Washington DC to create some custom craft cocktails with herbs grown in the Shimo garden!
