Nothing reminds me of summer like the flavor of lemon!
One of my favorite ways to infuse lemon into food and drinks is with lemon herbs. Lemon Balm is a member of the mint family, and is often used to flavor tea. Lemon Verbena is a very versatile herb that can also be used in flavoring tea, but is often incorporated into delicious sauces and desserts as well.
To create a tasty beverage using both of these delectable herbs, try this Sunshine Lemon Herb Punch:
|Simply peel and core half of a large pineapple, and cut into 1" chunks. Place them in a glass pitcher and, add in a 46||ounce can of pineapple juice, 1/3 cup of freshly squeezed lemon juice, 9 Lemon Balm leaves and 3 stalks of Lemon Verbena.|
Chill this mixture overnight. Then remove the whole herbs, and add in 4 ounces of ginger ale, 1/8 cup of sweetened lime juice and 3 lemons thinly sliced into rounds. Pour into glasses, garnish with a lemon slice, and enjoy!
