Lemon Balm Soda

August 28, 2011

I am cutting back the herbs for the final time this year, and that means a boatload of lemon balm. If you get a chance to ever grow some, the taste is fantastic. Making lemon balm soda is delicious and much better than drinking copious amounts of sugared pop from a can. Try it with lime slices and enjoy!

2 Tbsp honey
2 Quarts boiled water
1 Quart carbonated water, or natural ginger ale
