Lemon from Heaven
Traditional lemonade is often made with loads of sugar. This alternative provides loads of flavor and plant-based constituents that promote health. While drinking sugary beverages often just makes one thirstier, this delicious summertime treat cuts the heat and the thirst like a champ.
(Fresh or dried, but we advise keeping all these plants in your garden, if you are lucky enough to have one).
- Lemon Grass (Cympopogon Citratus) – one stalk
- Lemon Balm (Melissa Officinalis) – one handful
- Lemon Verbena (Aloysa Cirtodora) – one handful
- Half a Lemon (squeezed)
Pour boiling water over fresh herbs in a tempered glass pitcher. Let steep and cool. No need to remove the herbs.
Once ice cold, add a squeezed lemon before serving over ice.
