Cornell Botanic Gardens invites its members to a special herb-themed cocktail party, July 27, 5 -7 p.m. New members are welcomed.

The evening will feature drinks and savory hors d’oeuvres made with fresh herbal ingredients.

Guests will leave with recipes for the cocktails and tapas served in the garden. Participants must be 21 or older and prepared to show proof of age.

Fee: $50 for members, who are asked to preregister.
