I had this idea while prepping the bar the other day for strawberry mojitos. First, I was ripping the useful mint leaves off the stalk, then I was slicing the useless strawberry leaves off the fruit. Bingo.
Once somebody genetically engineers a strawberry with mint-flavored leaves, bartenders will be able to just throw the whole thing in the glass and start muddling. And that's just option one--we've got a blackberry-basil margarita on the menu that could be easier to make as well...
If they can already put any flavor in the world in soda water (or jelly beans), this sort of technology can't be that far away, right?
