Borage, also known as borage or borago, is an edible ornamental and medicinal plant that has been praised by some of the most famous herbalists in history. John Gerard's Herball contains the saying "Ego borago, gaudia semper ago", meaning "I, Borage, always bring courage". And according to Pliny the Elder, when borage leaves and flowers are added to wine, "it makes men and women glad and cheerful and drives away all sadness, gloom and melancholy." Given such praise, it is not surprising that the Blue and White Flowered Mix variety has become very popular in modern mixology, used to garnish cocktails such as the gin-based Pimm's Cup.
