Simple and good! I used at least a cup of fresh lemon verbena, and left my jar out in the sun for several hours. Loved the simplicity. Could also be left to steep overnight in the fridge. Thanks for sharing, Claire de Luna. Made for Magic of Herbs '10.

I have lemon verbena growing in the herb garden and this was the perfect beverage for a hot summer day! I did not however infuse the beverage in the sun due to safety concerns. Thank you for posting the recipe. cg ;)
