storing basil and mint

What's the best way to store fresh basil, mint etc? Refrigerator or not? It seems to go bad in a few days and I end up throwing it out before I have a chance to use it...

sea urchin?

I have only tried it once, years ago, but I would love to try it again. Anyone know restaurants in the area who serve it well? How is best prepared?

All of the amaros mentioned in this thread such as Averna, Meletti, Ramazzotti, Cynar, Becherovka are new to me

- do you drink them by themselves???? (with or without ice?)

I want to explore these more bc I love the bitter herbal taste component and would rather start with sampling them alone rather than mixed in a cocktail.

Definitely an acquired taste but it has recently become a new favorite. I tend to drink it straight but wondered if anyone has used it in mixed cocktails? Know any local bars that use in special cocktails?
