This is a traditional family recipe that I would like to keep as this syrup is really delicious and fresh. Usually I use bee balm flowers. This latin name of this herb is Monarda didyma. Other names: bergamot herb, scarlet beebalm, scarlet monarda, Oswego tea, or crimson beebalm. The same recipe is also applicable for flowers such as elder, honeysuckles, hibiskus, scented geraniums, violets, rose petals, pansies, citrus, lavender, basil. You can prepare this with different herbs too such as mint, sage, rosemary and much more.
