Spa Water

Aug. 2nd

Favorite Combinations:

  • Mexican sour gherkin slices, lemon verbena, dill
  • Mrihani basil, anise hyssop, mint
  • Bergamot, mint, lemon balm
  • Lemon balm, calendula, bergamot
  • Strawberry slices, lemon verbena, french tarragon
  • Nasturtium flowers, lemon verbena, mexican mint

This time of year it's easy to use herbs for lemon flavor in the water; tops on the list are lemon verbena and lemon balm.  To prepare, fill a pitcher with room temperature or luke warm water, add a small handful of slices and herb leaves (slightly bruising leaves brings out more flavor).  Let cool in refrigerator for a few hours.  The water will be delicately infused and refreshing.
